Calhoun County EMS under new leadership


A Tidehaven Independent School District student died Friday on campus, according to a news release from the school district.

"This morning, there was a tragic incident at Tidehaven ISD, and one of our students has passed away. Tidehaven ISD staff responded immediately and called emergency services, who responded and transported the student to a local hospital," Superintendent Andrew Seigrist said in the release.

The student's name, age, grade, gender and cause of death were not available Friday afternoon. Because of federal privacy laws, the school district is unable to provide further details regarding the incident at this time, Seigrist said in the release.

Basketball games originally scheduled for Friday night were postponed until noon Saturday in Van Vleck, according to a tweet by Tidehaven ISD Athletic Director David Lucio.

The school district was working with the staff and students Friday and will make counseling resources available to them as needed.

"There is no reason to believe this is a threat to our students or campus at this time. Please be assured that the health and safety of Tidehaven ISD students is our top priority," Seigrist said in the news release.
