Rest in Peace

November 21, 2022

Dear Englewood Public School District Students, Parents, Families, and Community,  

We are deeply saddened to announce that our Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Ronel Cook, was in a tragic car accident and has passed away. During his short tenure with the school district, Dr. Cook demonstrated a true passion for education, our students, and our community. Our condolences go out to his family. Additional information will be communicated later this week.  

Monitor and support the well-being and health of your student. Grief support is available on each campus from Administrators and School Counselors, as well as through the Traumatic Loss Coalition for Youth

Please keep Dr. Cook’s family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you. 

Jennifer D. Sifuentes, Ed.D. 
Acting Assistant Superintendent
Englewood Public School District
