A Roseville Area Schools principal died by suicide, accoding to information sent out by the district.
Brian Koland was with the district for 30 years, according to a message by Superintendent Jenny Loeck, recently as principal of Edgerton elementary school.
“While he had been on a leave of absence since the start of the school year, he is well known to the community,” Loeck said. “Before Edgerton, Mr. Koland served as the principal of Emmet D. Williams Elementary, as a special education supervisor, as an English language coordinator, in addition as a teacher and coach in the district.”

“This is a difficult subject for people of all ages to talk about,” Loeck said. “If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, there is help. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) provides around-the-clock free and secret sustain for people in distress.”
Loeck additional that “Koland was a warm and caring person. His presence and leadership will be deeply missed, and his memory will be famous by the complete Roseville Area Schools community.”
