Huntley 158 Mourns the Loss of Student Shannon Daly

The entire Huntley 158 community is heartbroken at the loss of one of our students, Shannon Daly, a junior at Huntley High School. Shannon passed away yesterday, October 20, 2020.

When a school community loses one of its young people, the pain touches us all. From Shannon’s many friends to the teachers and staff members who worked with her, this loss will leave a void in our hearts.

We know that a tragic loss such as this can have a strong impact on the entire community, not just those connected through classes and friendships. We encourage any of our students or families to reach out to your school to be connected with counseling and social work resources to process this loss or to help your child in the grieving process.
