Dear GDS Community,

I write with the deeply sad news that Kamal Nashid, a rising ninth grader, was struck by a car and killed today. There are no words.

Kamal was a wonderful young man, looking forward to starting at the High School this fall. Our hearts go out to Salim and Yolanda Nashid and their other three children, Laila '19, Murad '20, and Jibril '27. Join us in keeping the Nashid family in your hearts, not just now but in the days and months to come. We will be reaching out to the family to see how our community can best support them and will keep you informed.

We just learned this heartbreaking news hours ago, and don't yet have information regarding a service for Kamal. We will inform you of this as soon as we know more. We know that many of your children are learning this news on social media, and we want to be sure that our families have as much information as possible at this time. At moments like these you may feel in need of some guidance when talking with your children about death and loss. You will find links to helpful resources below. In addition, please feel free to reach out to Middle School counselor Gabrielle Holder and High School counselor Amy Killy.
