Pulaski High School is doing whatever it can to help the children of the couple killed Friday night in Green Bay, when police say a drunk driver plowed into their car.
James and Wendy Rush leave behind two teens, both students at Pulaski High School.
“We want to support them in any way we can. we offer our support, not only as a school but as a community,” said Lisa Misco, director of student services for the Pulaski School District.
Misco says the Crisis Response team has been activated. Counselors are on hand to help students grieving for their friends. But the counselors help in other ways too.
“Working with kids on what they can say to their friends to help them through things.”
Ironically, Misco says the high school has been working on its annual spring program that warns of the dangers of drinking and driving. She says the Rush family will be invited to offer their input into the program.
Misco also says the entire region, even outside of Pulaski, has been reaching out, asking if there’s anything they can do. She calls the outpouring a reflection of a caring community.
Alleged drunk driver Daniel Boucher is being held on $250,000 bond and facing charges of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle.
