TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Less than one month after a third-grade student passed away at Leon County’s Canopy Oaks Elementary School, a coach from the school has died from coronavirus.

Principal Staci Mortham shared news of the death of coach Logan Hurst on a school Facebook page Monday morning.

Mortham’s post reads:

“Good morning Cardinal Families… This is not the message I wanted to send out this morning. Our sweet Coach passed away at 1:36 this morning. Please keep Mrs. Hurst in your thoughts. I am working on having extra staff on campus to support our students and staff. We have been through a lot at COE and we are #CardinalStrong, but this has been a rough year. Hug your loved ones extra tight!”

According to Canopy Oak’s website, Hurst is listed as a P.E. Teacher.

Hurst was in the hospital for weeks battling COVID-19 and “horrible complications” caused by the virus, according to a GoFundMe page created to help Hurst’s family pay medical bills. You can find the GoFundMe at this link.

The Canopy Oaks student who died in August, Roxy Proctor, also died from coronavirus, according to an official court document.
