ARLINGTON — Dr. Kathleen Bodie, Superintendent of Arlington Public Schools, after conferring with members of the family involved in yesterday’s tragic death of an Arlington teenager, sent the following letter home to the school community:
Dear Parent and Guardians,
The media has reported the death of an Arlington teenager. We can confirm the sad news of the passing of Jeremy Kremer-McNeil, a sophomore at Arlington High School. Jeremy’s mother, Amy Kremer, was previously a teacher and librarian at Bishop Elementary School. 
We extend to Jeremy’s family our deepest sympathy for their loss.
Sometimes situations such as this are very difficult to process for some students. Dr. Janger will contact high school parents regarding support for students at the high school.
Some useful contacts to be aware of: Walk-in evaluation screening is available through Advocates in Waltham from 7:00 am-11:00 pm (781-893-2003). Counseling resources are also available 24 hours at the Massachusetts Suicide Prevention Hotline (800-273-TALK). You can also find additional resources at our Guidance website LINK.

We hope the community can provide support for Jeremy’s family and friends at this difficult time.
Sincerely,
Kathleen Bodie
