Pacific Collegiate School is saddened by the tragic sinking of the diving vessel Conception over the weekend. While this was not a school sponsored trip, our hearts and thoughts are with the families of the victims and those yet missing, particularly those of our students and parents on board. Thank you to the Santa Cruz community and others who have reached out to us to offer condolences and support for our school.
Please contact Santa Barbara County Sherriff’s office for news and updates. Our school website will be updated with any further statements from Pacific Collegiate School.
Right now, our priority as a school community is to support our students, staff, and families in the wake of this tragedy. We have been working closely with the Santa Cruz County Office of Education and Santa Cruz County Mental Health Services to activate the School Emergency Response Protocol (SERP) in order to provide much needed resources and a network of additional support to our school community.
Please respect our need to gather as a school community, to respond privately, and to care for our students and families.
