WUS Mourns Loss of Student — A Message From: Tom Cutler, Principal Wayland Union High School

July 15, 2019

Dear Parent(s) or Guardian: It is with sadness that I inform you of the death of Ethan Mutschler, a senior at Wayland Union High School. Ethan died from injuries suffered in a car accident which occurred on Friday, July 12.

Visitation for Ethan will be this Friday, July 19 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm and 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Wayland Union Fine Arts Center.

The funeral will be Saturday morning at 11:00am, also at the WUFAC. Parents are encouraged to attend the funeral with their student.

Students will have varied reactions to the death of a peer. Any reaction is normal in the grief process and can range from withdrawal to crying and anger. I encourage you to openly discuss with your student their reactions and feelings regarding the death of Ethan.

Our Guidance Counseling Staff will be available at Wayland Union High School on Tuesday, July 16th from 10am-2pm for any students or staff who would benefit from the support of a counselor as we grieve the loss of Ethan Mutschler.

Counselors can also be contacted by emailing Lisa Gulch at gulchl@waylandunion.org


Tom Cutler, Principal

Wayland Union High School
