'Don't you know my son is dead?'

Father of boy who drowned on class trip gets 'truancy' warning from school

(London Daily Mail) The father of a New York City teen who drowned on a class trip in June received a phone call from the school last week to discuss his son’s poor attendance.

Though Jean Fritz Pierre, 16, died over the summer while swimming in a Bear Mountain State Park, his Prospect Park, Brooklyn high school evidently didn’t update their records and put in the insensitive call to his still grieving father.

Now Jonas Pierre says he’s stricken by the death all over again as he comes to grips with how this horrific mistake could have happened.
