“At approximately 8:20 this morning (before the official start of our school day at 8:30) we had a student voluntarily jump from a second story window. The student was taken by ambulance to a Duluth Hospital – at this time the injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
I’m proud and impressed with the quick actions of our CHS staff. We have a team of school counselors and social workers on site helping students and staff process. We also have a behavioral health team from Fond du Lac on site to assist. We’d like to thank the Cloquet Police Department and Cloquet Fire/Ambulance for their assistance this morning. We’d also like to thank the Fond du Lac nation for assisting with student support.”
