Dom Cooks Passes


Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cooks family and the staff and students at Decatur and Saghalie as we process the loss of Dom Cooks.  Many of us at Saghalie, Lakota, and Decatur enjoyed knowing “InDOMitable” and have been involved with the Cooks family for a number of years. Our hearts are with them.  If any of our students would like to talk about this, or if you see student behavior of concern, please let the office know. Grief can affect us differently and we want to make sure everyone has the support they need. Thank you Dom for being a friend and inspiration for all the Skyhawks and Gators you met, and all of you for supporting this family and caring for each of our students every day.
