WILMINGTON (WPVI) --Students at Concord High School in Wilmington were given the day off Monday to deal with the sudden passing of a beloved teacher.
Thom Labarbera died over the weekend.
The popular social studies teacher had been with the Brandywine School District for the past 20 years.
In a Facebook post, the district called LaBarbera's death "unexpected and tragic."
Teachers and crisis team staff will be on hand Tuesday to help students cope with the loss.
