Dear Stanwich School Community,

I write with some shocking and sad news to share. Our beloved music and drama teacher, Kerry Gotschall, has died unexpectedly in her sleep for unknown reasons. As this is a recent occurrence, we will communicate further as appropriate when more information is available.

Those who knew Kerry, particularly her students, will always remember her positive, happy disposition and particularly her shining spirit of love for music and the children with whom she worked. Her passing is a great loss for her family, and for the many communities to which she has contributed in her short, benevolent life. 

Please know that we will be supporting our students in dealing with this loss, and we will celebrate Kerry’s life in a fitting way in school at a later date. 

We share our sincere condolences with Kreg Gotschall and Caroline Worra during this difficult time.


Charles Sachs
Head of School
