Dear Conneaut School District Family,
It is with great sadness that we inform you that Joel Wentling, principal of Conneaut Lake Middle School, passed away Saturday morning after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was deeply devoted to the staff, students and families of the Conneaut School District for over 22 years. His death is a profound loss to all who had the good fortune to know him. The district will have counselors available throughout the week for those students that need help with the grieving process. If you feel that your child needs to talk to one of the counselors available, please email Dr. Ben Stumpf, school psychologist, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
