Dear Hudson School Community,
It is with great sadness that I must inform you that Mr. Andy Stapp passed away early this morning from heart failure. Please keep Andy’s family in your thoughts and prayers. It will always be a privilege to have shared 32 amazing years with someone who cared so passionately about the world and sought justice for all. He was a gentleman and a scholar, and a dear and much respected colleague.
We are all absorbing this sudden loss to our school community. As we receive any further information from his family, we will continue to keep you informed. We are waiting for their directions before planning our own tribute.
Tomorrow at school we plan to speak to the students in their homerooms. At the close of the school assembly, which will be held in the church next door to our school, we will have a moment of silence in Mr. Stapp’s honor. Additionally,the associate director, Chris Stodolski, and I, as well as Ali Fantl, our guidance counselor, and Lisa Wittner, student life coordinator, will be available to meet with students. If you have any concerns for your own child, please reach out to Lisa Wittner, Ali Fantl or Chris Stodolski. As I am sure you must realize, this is an emotional time and a great loss to our whole community. We thank you for your understanding.
Founder and Director
