The Oak Park and River Forest High School community is mourning the death of former teacher Kevin McCarron, who died Feb. 20 due to complications from cancer. 

“McCarron retired from OPRF in 2019 after 25 years of service to our students and community,” D200 Supt. Joylynn Pruitt-Adams wrote in an email sent to families on Feb. 21. “Kevin taught astronomy and physics. My fondest memory of Kevin was seeing him out on beautiful starry nights with members of his class star and planet gazing, often giving me an opportunity to look.” 

Pruitt-Adams said support staffers are on standby for any students who need them.
