The EMSB is in mourning following the tragic death of Grade 10 Westmount High School student Heather Edelstein Bustard and her two siblings Kurtis and Kelly Hanson both of whom graduated from the EMSB's former Wagar High School in 1998 and 2004 respectively. They all perished in a fire at the family's log cabin in the Mauricie region last weekend. Kelly's boyfriend Andrew Hummell, also a 2004 Wagar grad, died in the blaze as well. The EMSB Traumatic Events Support team spent a day at the school counseling friends of Heather, who was described as a well-liked student. Last year she took part in the school's musical production and participated in the improvisation league.
