Sean Studler died Sunday afternoon.
Investigators said Studler was walking along a train track in Conway when he was struck by an oncoming train.
Detectives said he was wearing headphones.
Studler was a sophomore at Conway High School.
Superintendent Greg Murry said the counselors at the school are skilled at helping with grief."They're very well trained to be able to counsel them through this grief process because it is difficult for all of them," Murray said.
No word yet on if classmates will have special plans to remember Studler.
