BILLINGS- Lockwood schools are calling in counselors Thursday after an intermediate student died at home in an accident.

In a Wednesday Facebook post, district officials noted they wanted to inform parents if their children are asking tough questions when they come home. The intermediate school has students between grades 3 and 5.

Counselors will be available Thursday from 8 a.m. to noon for children or parents who need help, according to the post. Lockwood schools will not have classes Thursday through Monday for spring break.

Yellowstone Boys & Girls Ranch counselors can be reached at 671-0972, and will be available at other times, according to the post.

A representative from the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office said law enforcement had no immediate comment Wednesday but would release more information at a later date.
