A Lake Travis Middle School student died from an illness on Wednesday evening, the school district said in an email to parents and employees Thursday.
Chloe Sanders was an eighth grader, school officials said.
“Chloe had such a sweet and loving heart,” Principal Jodie Villemarie said in the email. “She brought happiness and smiles to those around her. Chloe was very outgoing and had many friends. She participated in athletics and was a member of the school’s cheerleading team. Lake Travis Middle School is truly an amazing community, and we are both fortunate and blessed to have been able to spend the time we had with Chloe.”
Several community members offered their condolences through Lake Travis school district’s Facebook page.
It is not immediately known how Sanders died.
Counselors will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Lake Travis Middle School, school officials said.
