Students in North Hastings are being encouraged to wear jerseys tomorrow to pay tribute to the Humboldt Broncos.

The Saskatchewan hockey team was involved in a bus crash last Friday night, which killed 15 people including players, coaches, and personnel. Fourteen people were also hurt.

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is sending its thoughts and heartfelt condolences to everyone affected by the tragedy. Communications Officer Kerry Donnell says the board is encouraging all students to pay tribute to the team.

Donnell says the board is also aware that many students could be having trouble dealing with this tragic event. She says there are a number of resources available to them.

Meanwhile, the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board is also expressing its deepest sympathies to the families affected by the accident. Communications Officer Jessica Salmon says all schools in the board will be taking steps to remember those affected by it.

Both Our Lady of Mercy Catholic School in Bancroft and St. Martin of Tours in Whitney will be taking part in Jersey Day tomorrow. Salmon says these schools also have councillors available to speak with students who are upset or confused by the tragedy.
