School District Announces Sudden Death of Former Board Member

It is with great sadness that the Millburn School District shares the news of the loss of former Board of Education member, Danielle Prieto, her husband Alfred and their son, Antonio, in a highway accident yesterday. 


Dr. Christine Burton, Superintendent of Schools, shared, “Danielle cared so much for students, teachers and the district in her service on the board and the many projects for which she advocated.  She had a generous heart that was reflected through her volunteerism and her donations to the district.  She and her family will be sincerely missed by all who knew them. We send our deepest condolences to her grieving sons, Alec and Roberto and to all of her family and friends.”


Grief counselors will be available tomorrow at our schools to support students and staff as they process this tragic loss.


The district will share more information about services when they are announced. The family would like donations in memory of the Prieto Family to be given to Autism Awareness charities.
