The woman passed away on Monday night. The district’s website lists her as a member of the nutrition team at Sonia Sotomayor Elementary School.
Tuesday afternoon, the school’s principal sent out a message, letting families know that a staff member had died. The message says the employee had been hospitalized for a few weeks.
