SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Students at the Academy of Arts and Academics in Springfield returned to school on Monday, following the death of their principal, Michael Fisher, last week.

Students were given the opportunity to meet with grief counselors at the school to talk about the loss.

"These students are high school students, so they process a lot with each other providing that space, and we're also having our Mobile Metal Resource Center come in and they already have a relationship with that building so they do a lot to support students," said Sheri Childers, the school psychologist.

Counselors from the Mobile Mental Health Clinic visit the school weekly, and are continuing their help through this crisis.

A3 says that the students will have continued support and encourage parents to contact school counselors if they have any concerns about their students.
