— Catherine Russell, principal of Seton Catholic Central School, where Ong and Xiong were enrolled as foreign exchange students, also expressed her regret in a statement.

“Seton Catholic is mourning the loss of two students as well as the loss of the two students from neighboring schools. This is a small area and this tragedy touches everyone,” stated Russell.

Scott A. Amo, superintendent of the Beekmantown Central School District where Donah was a student, was saddened by the news of her death and the three others lost in the crash.

“It’s a tragic loss of life,” said Amo, adding school staff has “been wonderful arranging for [grief counseling] with our school counselors, school psychologists, and staff members.”

Additionally, students at Beekmantown are writing condolences and other messages on parchment paper as part of the grieving process.
