MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – After two 14-year-old students committed suicide over the weekend in Lyon County, the Marshal Public School District has organized a meeting, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, to discuss concerns relating to student grief.

The meeting is scheduled to take place in the Marshall School Theater at 5:30 p.m. For additional information on the meeting, see the district’s website for information on typical grief responses for children.

“ It is a very difficult item for a community to deal with,” said Marshall Public Schools Superintendent Klint Willert. “It is something that, as a community, we grieve.”

Haylee Fentress, of Rural Lynd, and Paige Moravetz, of Lynd, were found dead of apparent suicide Saturday morning, police said. Both were students at Marshall Middle School.

During a press conference Monday afternoon, Willert said there is no evidence to support the rumors, spread through social media, that there was a suicide cult at the school.
