WEATHERFORD -- Weatherford ISD is mourning a second grade teacher who appears to have passed away from flu-related complications, CBS DFW reports.

Heather Holland, a teacher at Ikard Elementary School, passed away on Sunday.

“As you might expect, today is a difficult day at that campus,” Charlotte LaGrone of the Weatherford ISD stated Monday. “We are working our processes to care for students, parents and staff.” Counselors will be available at the school through the entire week to help people cope with the loss."

The district has been deep cleaning their schools since December to protect students and staff from the flu.

CBS DFW reports that Holland's classroom had been last cleaned on Friday.
