WE ARE DEEPLY SADDENED TO SHARE
We have extremely sad and urgent news to share with our El Morro families. We are deeply saddened to inform you that our beloved Principal, Mr. Chris Duddy passed away last night in his sleep. Mr. Duddy has been an incredible partner and leader in our El Morro family and Laguna Beach Unified School District. This is incredibly shocking news to share and we are all working diligently to support our El Morro teachers, staff, and students. We also share our deepest sorrows and sympathy with Mr. Duddy’s wife, children, and family.
We have crisis responders on site today and in the coming days to support staff and students with processing this tragedy.
