Police are investigating after a student at Timberlane Regional High School in Plaistow, New Hampshire, died from a drug overdose earlier this week.

Principal Donald Woodworth sent an email to parents Wednesday notifying them of the junior's death on Tuesday night. Her name has not been released. 

Woodworth wrote that school counselors and administrators are available to provide support to any students who are struggling with the girl's death. 

Superintendent Dr. Earl Metzler says this is Timberlane Regional's first fatal overdose since he began working in the district in 2012. 

Police have only confirmed that they are investigating the death and did not mention a specific drug or location. The circumstances surrounding the overdose remain unclear. 

More information is expected to be released Thursday.
