It's never a good weekend when your student is killed by a hit-and-run driver.

I'm really sorry to hear about this. Anything more you can say?

Just the brute fact of it. Apparently he was crossing the street and was struck by a vehicle. A suspect has been arrested. An undergraduate student in one of my classes, whose sister I also know very well as I am on her dissertation committee.

Wow. I'm sorry to hear that. I couldn't tell if this person was a face in the crowd in a 300-person lecture hall or someone you knew. Then again, I guess a student is always a student... do you plan to say anything about it in class?

Yes, of course. It would be very bad not to acknowledge this in a class that includes many of his friends and fellow Spanish majors. We will have a grief counsellor on hand too.
