District Mourns the Loss of Sager Teacher and High School Track Coach

College Place Public Schools staff and students are mourning the loss of a beloved John Sager Middle School teacher. Mr. John Hough passed away on Saturday, March 17th. 

Mr. Hough was a dynamic and much-loved teacher at John Sager Middle School. Mr. Hough joined the Sager team at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year. He assisted in the coordination of the Learning Assistance Program (LAP) which included teaching both English and math. He was also a track coach at Sager and College Place High School. Mr. Hough's smiling face will be greatly missed by our students and staff. 

The District has activated its Crisis Response team for both students and staff. Grief counselors and additional staff will be on site at Sager and College Place High School on Monday to provide support to students and staff. There will be ongoing support throughout the week as needed. 

Our hearts and prayers are with the Hough family during this extremely difficult time.
