A Billings Catholic Schools student died in the hospital Tuesday after being admitted with an illness, according to a letter school officials sent to parents.

The letter offers sympathies and prayers to the student's family.

St. Francis Catholic School principals Deb Hayes and Jim Stanton signed the letter, as did Billings Catholic Schools President Shaun Harrington.

Parish priests and trained grief counselors will be at Billings Catholic Schools this week to support students.
