Extra counsellors and senior school board administration are at Dundonald School to help staff, students and families deal with the drowning death of a five-year-old boy in a nearby pond.

Saskatoon Public School Division spokeswoman Veronica Baker on Tuesday said the division pulled counsellors from other schools and that supports are available for families that need help dealing with the Kindergarten student’s death. She said families and students are being encouraged to come forward if they’re having a difficult time.

“We have the supports in place,” Baker said. “If they feel that they need something additional, that is certainly available to them and we hope that they will come forward.

“Or if they identify that somebody else may need some assistance, to be a good friend and to make the staff aware of that, and we’ll provide whatever they need.”

Saskatoon police and MD Ambulance responded Monday around 10:50 a.m. to the 100 block of Wedge Road, where “attempts were being made to locate a five-year-old child,” police said in a news release. The boy was found minutes later and taken by MD Ambulance to Royal University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Saskatoon Public Schools director of education Barry MacDougall confirmed on Monday that the boy was found in the pond.

“There isn’t anything worse that can happen,” he told a group of reporters at the division office in downtown Saskatoon.

MacDougall said senior administrators and the Dundonald principal joined family members at the hospital.

On Monday night, Saskatoon Public School Division board chair Ray Morrison took to Twitter to offer his “deepest condolences” to the boy’s family and the entire Dundonald school community, saying the “tragedy at Dundonald school is truly heart wrenching.”

On Tuesday, Baker said the boy’s classmates wouldn’t return to school until Wednesday, as he was in a full-day program with alternating days.
