Letter to DCISM Families

Dear DCISM Families:

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Elysia Belser, one of our 12th grade students who was our student-body president and soon-to-be 2017 valedictorian. Elysia lost her valiant fight early Saturday morning from a medical condition. Elysia was extraordinarily brilliant and compassionate, and one of the most determined students. Her amazing heart and courage touched many of our students and staff throughout the six years she has been at DCISM.

We have met with our faculty and staff and students who were closest to Elysia and her family. We will have school supports for those who need it. Continued support will be available for students and staff.

Your student may have questions or be upset, and you may wish to discuss further with your son or daughter about death and grief. The following signs may indicate that your son or daughter is having difficulty, but with time they should decrease. Signs of stress:

Most importantly, marked changes in usual ways of behaving, including decline in school productivity or mood changes
Changes in sleeping or eating problems
Withdrawing behaviors
Easily distracted
Physical symptoms
Acting out behavior, including aggression
Passivity or listlessness
Our assistant principals, school social workers, school counselors, school psychologist, school deans, nurse and myself are all available for support and may be contacted at 720-423-5900. Please do not hesitate to contact us if needed.

Out of privacy and respect for the family, we will not be giving out personal information. For those community members who know the family, we suggest you watch for funeral arrangements and announcements in the newspaper.

Our thoughts are with the family at this time.


Dr. Julie Murgel
