Dennis Bzduch, a physical education teacher and coach at the York School died January 4.
While no obituary has been written yet (to our knowledge) the School said that “Dennis was a vital member of our community.”
Coach Bzduch was the girls’ varsity basketball coach as well as a health teacher and a driver education teacher.
“He was an advocate for all children and their well-being,” the School said.
We will be offering grief support to our school community over the next few days.
“This is a very difficult time for our students, faculty and staff. Our teams are readily available for any student, staff or faculty member who may need support,” said York Central School Superintendent David Furletti.
For the past 10 years, Bzduch has organized a summer teen driver safety program at Minnehan’s Fun Center, Lakeville, in which hundreds of students from area schools were able to learn about and experience in a controlled environment that dangers that come from driving on wet roads, texting while driving, and impaired driving.
The school will be offering grief support to the school community.
Students and parents are welcome to gather in the Main Gym from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday for grief support activities. Faculty and staff are welcome to gather in the Middle School/High School Library from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
On Tuesday, alumni may gather in the Middle School/High School Library at 12:30 p.m. Grief counselors will be available for support.
Additional grief counseling/sharing is posted on the school site.
