Many students and staff at Madison Memorial High School will wear green and white Wednesday in honor of their former principal, Bruce Dahmen.
Dahmen died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack while visiting a former player in Tennessee.
The school district confirmed his death early Wednesday morning.
In the letter, the district called Dahmen "a tremendous leader in this community who touched all of our lives, and this is an incredible loss for our community."
The district is sending the letter to all students, confirming Dahmen's death. The district said they have a plan in place to support students and staff throughout the day, but are encouraging parents to check with their children to make sure they are doing OK.
Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham released a statement calling Dahman an incredible leader and expert principal.
"He led Memorial High School with skill and integrity, and he touched the lives of countless students, staff and families. This is a tremendous loss for our community," she said.
Cheatham said the focus Wednesday is on supporting the school's staff, students and families.
The district has told anyone who has any questions about Dahmen's death should call 608-663-5990 starting at 7 a.m. Wednesday.Wednesday, February 12 2014, 03:32 PM CST
