Our thoughts are with those in Uvalde, Texas. The events that happened there yesterday are heartbreaking and tragic. There are too many emotions to describe the effect of seeing this event and having to send resources yet again about senseless acts of violence that impact school age children. As an educator, I feel anger and sadness that our students and teachers have to process these events. As a mother, it is difficult to process the emotions and think about how and what to discuss with my own children. Attached is a resource I have found helpful in supporting conversations at home.
Our goal at school and the most important priority is making sure our students are safe and feel that sense of belonging and safety.
Students need normalcy from us. We will continue to support and educate our students. We are here for them. If they need space to talk or process, our counselors are available to support.
Please reach out if there is anything you need.
Have a good day,
