GHS mourns death of math teacher

Dear GHS parent/guardian,

It is with extreme sadness that I send this letter to you today to report the death of one of Guilderland High School's long-time Mathematics teachers, Warren Bollinger. Mr. Bollinger passed away at his home sometime during the winter break. He had been a teacher at GHS since 1997, and an advisor for the GHS Java Programming Club.

The Guilderland Police Department, which continues to investigate the matter, notified the district of his passing this morning. The District Crisis Team gathered immediately to notify faculty, staff and students, and make social workers and counselors available to those who need them. That process will continue in the coming days.

During times like these it is important to support one another and the GHS family is there to do just that. If your student needs to talk to someone we are here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact my office.

In the meantime, our prayers go out to Mr. Bollinger and his family. As a school community, we all mourn together.


Tom Lutsic, GHS Principal
