Not a lot of details have been released, no word on what exactly happened in that classroom. The school says the kids were unaware of the situation. There was minimal disruption to the instructional day. The school notified parents of the supposed suicide before notifying students. “Our focus is always on the safety and well-being of our students. We felt that you should be aware of the situation in case your child comes home with questions or concerns,” the school’s principal wrote in an email to parents. Counselors would be available to students or teachers throughout the week. Jordan Halane, 31, married in December 2016 and described himself a 'lifelong music lover' who was 'passionate about education.'
