ROBBINSVILLE - Students in Robbinsville are back in class for the first time since the tragic death of the school district's superintendent.

Dr. Steven Mayer was struck and killed on Tuesday by a car while he was out jogging before school. Mayer's dog was also struck and killed. The driver was one of Mayer's female students, who is a senior.

Mayer was married and had three children. About 1,000 people gathered at Foxmoore Park in Robbinsville on Tuesday to hold a vigil for the man they say was a vital member of the community.

Grief counseling will be available to any student or staff that needs it. Schools in Robbinsville were canceled on Tuesday and Wednesday.

No charges have been filed. The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office is investigating the crash.
