Dear Parents, Employees and Community Members,
Our thoughts are with the families impacted by the tragic loss of life in Connecticut. This tragedy is difficult for anyone, especially children, to comprehend.
A resource you may find useful is "Talking to Children About Violence: Tips for Parents and Teachers" From the National Association of School Psychologist. Please be open to listening to your children talk about their feelings and reaction to this incident.
I, like you, am deeply disturbed by the events in Connecticut. When an incident this significant occurs, it makes us take time to reassess our own protocols and security measures. Therefore, we will be reviewing our security, security procedures and preventative measures.
