One school community is mourning the loss of their beloved teacher who died earlier this week.

Louis Barcelo was a physical education teacher at P.S./M.S. 280. Students say he lifted them up, even through a screen, during a pandemic.

His students received notice Thursday that Barcelo died.

Dozens of his students showed up to the Norwood school to light candles for the teacher.

The Department of Education could not immediately confirm if Barcelo's death was related to the coronavirus.
