HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. -- Classes have been canceled Friday at two Hamilton Southeastern schools after two longtime teachers died Wednesday evening.
Classes were canceled Thursday and Friday at Fall Creek Intermediate School and Hoosier Road Elementary School.
The closures were announced hours after a Kristal Sergi, 44, and Frank Sergi II, 52, were found dead in a home in Fishers.
An HSE representative said the closures are a result of the death investigation.
Fishers Police Department officers were called to a house near the intersection of Dorster Street and Pennington Avenue around 6 p.m. for a report of shots fired. Police found the man and woman dead inside the house. Police are preliminarily calling it a murder-suicide, according to Call 6 sources.
According to property records, the couple had filed for divorce in August.
In a statement sent to Hamilton Southeastern parents, the school said they will keep both schools open on Thursday and Friday with grief counseling from mental health professionals available.
