Dear Tahoma High School families:

We are sharing tragic news about a vehicle accident that has claimed the life of a Tahoma High School student and injured six people, including two other students. The two-vehicle accident occurred at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday on the Covington-Sawyer Road.

According to police, three Tahoma High School students were riding in one of the vehicles. One of the students, a 15-year-old girl, died at the scene. The other two students, 17-year-old boys, were injured and transported to hospitals. There were five people in the other vehicle and four of them were injured and transported to Harborview Medical Center. Police have not released names. The accident remains under investigation.

We will do all that we can to support our students and staff as we grieve. School counselors are available to talk to students and offer support. Call 425-413-6204 to reach a counselor. We are also asking our community mental health partners for assistance and will update you about available resources.

Let us all help, respect and care for each other as we deal with this terrible accident. The families of these students will need our support, but we should also respect their privacy. Please be safe.
