Principal Janice Schwarze said students and staff gathered Friday morning in a “strong show of support for Beth,” she wrote in a statement posted on the school’s website.
Downers Grove police said the student, who school officials identified as 17-year-old junior Beth Dunlap, was crossing the intersection of Main and Grant streets in a marked crosswalk near the school the morning of February 20 when she was struck by a vehicle.
The driver stopped at the scene of the accident, and an investigation is ongoing, a police spokesperson said.
Dunlap was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital with injuries police described as “life-threatening,” and she has remained hospitalized all week.
