CLEVELAND — The Hathaway Brown community is grieving this week after the loss of two students over the weekend. 

Hundreds gathered Monday night in the school's courtyard in remembrance of Scout and Chasey Scaravilli, who passed away as a result of a tragic hammock accident at their home on Sunday. 

"The entire HB community is saddened by the loss of the Scaravilli sisters; they will be greatly missed by so many friends, classmates, and teachers,” said Head of School Fran Bisselle in a statement on the schools website, “Our thoughts and prayers are dedicated to their family."

On Wednesday, the Hathaway Brown school announced that the Scaravilli family has launched a memorial fund to honor Scout and Chasey. 

"To honor their devotion to HB, the Scaravilli family has established the Scout and Chasey Scaravilli Memorial Fund as a lasting tribute to these remarkable girls," said Bisselle, "their warm hearts and vibrant spirits will be cherished by family and friends and it’s fitting that their legacy includes a continuation of their deep appreciation of sisterhood."
