School officials speak to the loss of a member of the THS Tiger family

“Our hearts are heavy today due to the loss of one of our beloved students,” said Kyle Ferguson, principal of Thomasville High School. “Gavin Pugh, a Senior at THS, was tragically killed this morning (Jan. 8) in a traffic accident on his way to school. Please remember his family, classmates, and teachers in your prayers as we all struggle to deal with his loss.

“I would also encourage you to discuss this event with your student in order to help them process the intense emotions that they may be experiencing due to the untimely loss of a classmate. This can be so hard to understand, especially for teens and adolescents. Please reach out to us at THS if you feel that your student may be in need of additional support, or grief counseling, so that we can provide that resource for them.”

Garth Moss, superintendent of Thomasville City Schools, also spoke regarding the death of the student. “We are all deeply saddened by the tragic loss today of THS senior Gavin Pugh,” he said. “There are no words to express the sense of loss that our school is experiencing this morning, Thomasville is a family and when one hurts, we all hurt.

“We appreciate and covet the prayers of everyone for Gavin’s family and for his classmates and teachers,” the superintendent added.

Note from Ferguson 12-17-19

IMPORTANT!
Hello Tiger Family!
I wanted to take a moment to share some information/reminders:
 
• Parents are to pick up students in car line, not in the student parking lot.  This is part of our safety plan...we don't want anyone other than students in the student parking lot.
• Grades 9-12 are picked up in front of the main (high school) building, grades 7-8 are picked up in front of the middle school (C) building.
• We are not accepting visitors on campus during school hours unless they have an appointment with a school official.  Teaching and learning is our top priority as we prepare students for mid-terms and finals.
• Parents, please always sign in and out through the front office.  It's important that we know who is on campus, and when they leave.  Please don't leave through the gym, cafeteria, or other areas during the school day, but sign out through the front office.  This includes band and athletic visitors.  Again, we are talking about during regular school hours.
• Today was the deadline for students to turn in signed exemption forms.  Students who did not turn in their signed forms will not be exempted, and will be expected to be in attendance as scheduled.
• THS Basketball visits Leroy tonight, THS Wrestling is at W.S. Neal
• THS Basketball hosts Marengo County Thursday night, games start at 5PM, admission is $7.  All patrons will enter through the double doors on the West side of the gym lobby (doors nearest the middle school building).
• Lastly, to address an apparent miscommunication that occurred within a classroom today, we DID NOT have any incident today that compromised the safety of our students and staff.  We simply went door to door checking to make sure all doors are closed and locked at all times, and reminded teachers to always be vigilant, and to notify the front office immediately if they saw someone on campus who was not a student or staff member.  This is the time of year when former students tend to show up, and want to visit with teachers and friends, bring gifts, or just drop by when they are home from college.  We reminded everyone personally today that we are not allowing visitors to wander the campus and interrupt classes.  Having a safe and orderly school is the foundation that all else is built upon.  These are non-negotiable expectations for the entire Tiger Family!  
Please don't hesitate to give us a call or send an email if you have any questions.  Email is the best way to get in touch, so please make sure you provide an email address if you are having to read this message from the website, rather than your email account.  Thanks, and have a great evening!  GO TIGERS!!!
