“It is with great sadness that we learned one of our long-time Nanwalek School staff members has died during a house fire on Tuesday. Our hearts go out to Jim Reinseth, his family, friends, and the staff, students, and community of Nanwalek where he has been an educator since 2007. We are working with our principal and the village to ensure that any additional support and comfort that we can offer is provided.” –Superintendent John O’Brien
Emotional support has been made available to staff and students to assist them as they navigate through this difficult process. Jim dedicated many years of service to the Nanwalek community and will be greatly missed.
