The Lower Merion School District community is saddened to learn of the death of Belmont Hills Firefighter Tom Royds (HHS '91) and of the serious injuries to two other firefighters who answered an accident call on the Schuylkill Expressway early Saturday morning and who have close ties to our school district.
The thoughts of our Board of School Directors, Administration, staff and students are with the families of these brave members of our community, who embody our District motto, "Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve." We hope for speedy and full recoveries for the injured and for strength and comfort for the Royds family.
Lower Merion High School will be offering counseling to students who feel impacted by this terrible incident. Details will be shared with students and their families in the coming days.
