After a medical emergency in class on Tuesday, Darlington School is mourning the death of high school history teacher John Zazaro.
In a letter to the school, principal Brent Bell stated that Zazzaro “had a medical emergency during one of his classes” on Tuesday, despite the rapid response of students and colleagues, performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation and deploying automated external removal. Until the EMS arrived at the scene, they received the news of Zazzaro’s death.
Bell said in the letter: “This is devastating news for the Zazaro family, who have settled on the Darlington campus for the past 10 years.” It is also very difficult for the entire school community. Neither department will hold classes (Wednesday).”
Bell said that high school counselor Chris Allen and management staff can consult and talk. The Morris Chapel will be open to anyone in the community who wants to participate in prayer services at 9 am on Wednesday.
The course will resume on Thursday morning.
Bell said: “I know we will all keep Babe, Casey (19 years old) and Colin (19 years old) in our thoughts and prayers,” Bell said, adding that he will communicate the arrangements when they become available The details.
