The following is an email sent by CHS Interim Principal Dr. Kalisha Morgan on February 21:
It is with a great deal of sadness that I am informing you of the death of one of our beloved staff members.
One of our permanent substitute teachers and freshman basketball coach, Mr. Erskine Rowe, unexpectedly passed away. The exact cause is unknown at this time.
His passing will affect the many staff members and students he worked with daily. School Counselors are available for anyone, students and staff, wishing to talk about this tragic event.
We wanted all parents to be aware of the situation so that you can discuss this with your child. Please contact the school if you feel that further follow-up with your child would be helpful.
Our thoughts and well-wishes go out to his family and friends.
