NORWALK — The Norwalk High School community is mourning the death of longtime teacher and coach Jon Albrecht.
In an email, Norwalk High Principal Reginald Roberts informed the school community on Monday about Albrecht’s death.
“Mr. Albrecht was a valued member of our physical education and health department, well-known to a multitude of students, parents, and families for his many years of service to Norwalk Public Schools. At NHS, Mr. Albrecht had been a coach of several athletic teams as well as our dean at one time,” Roberts said.
Albrecht, a former Stamford High School coach, died Thursday due to complications of COVID-19, according to state medical examiner Dr. James Gill. He was 55.
The district and the school crisis team offered support services to students and staff on Monday.
“A mentor, a friend, a trusted colleague, a compassionate teacher, and a parent of NHS graduates, Mr. Albrecht gave so much to our community, for which we are truly grateful,” Roberts said. “Please keep the Albrecht family and the NHS community in your thoughts and prayers.”
