ORRHSHigh School in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has ordered US flag and Commonwealth flag lowered to half-staff on Friday, February 16, 2018 in honor of US Marine PFC William Becket Kiernan of #Rochester, Massachusetts.
Hello Old Rochester
We are looking ahead to Friday as the school and community prepares to honor the life of Becket Kiernan, class of 2017.
For students looking to attend the funeral at 9:30 a.m., we ask that they submit their dismissal note during homeroom as we will follow our normal dismissal procedures and protocols....
Following the funeral on Friday, the funeral procession will pass by ORRHS. The PTSO has purchased American flags for students at both the junior and senior high school to hold on route six as the funeral procession passes the school. We will be inviting all students to join us on the school-side of route six to pay respects to the funeral procession. Students that do not wish to go outside will be welcomed in the auditorium. The temperature looks pretty good for Friday, but we will allow students to wear jackets during block 3 as we are anticipating the procession some time around 11:00 a.m.
With this opportunity to honor Becket, we expect students may need emotional support and we will be prepared to assist students in our guidance office.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Old Rochester lost a true leader and friend last week. Becket Kiernan, class of 2017, passed away while fulfilling his lifelong dream of serving in the Marines. Becket was an inspiration to all at ORRHS and his passing has impacted the entire community. The attached picture is from a profile in our school newspaper while Becket was a student.
