The death of a school employee after a medical issue suffered on campus at Red Bank Regional High led to the cancellation of student activities Thursday, the first day of the new school year.
School officials declined to identify the employee, pending notification of family members.
Further details were not available, beyond the text of a message sent out via the online “parents portal” shortly after 2 p.m. It read:
We regret to inform you that on Thursday, September 4th, one of our employees experienced a medical emergency at work and was transported to River View Hospital. We are sorry to report that the employee subsequently passed away. We are not presently releasing the employee’s name pending family notification. All after school activities were cancelled for the day and will resume on Friday, September 5th.
