Erin Carey, ETHS Class of 2018


The Evanston Township High School family is deeply saddened by the loss of a member of our Class of 2018, Erin Carey, who passed away on June 19, according to the Chicago Police Department. An investigation is ongoing.


Many of our students and staff will have a difficult time dealing with the loss of a fellow Wildkit. A list of community resources is available on the ETHS website: The ETHS Student Services Department will provide drop-in grief counseling during Summer School hours for Summer School students seeking support.


We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Erin’s family and friends, our students, and staff. Additional information regarding services may be available according to the family’s wishes.
