Helping Kids Deal with Scary News
It seems today's news is full of stories about violence and tragedy.
As you may know, all of our schools conduct emergency drills on a regular basis. The district works closely with law enforcement, fire and other emergency services to review the emergency plans at each site. With the extensive media coverage that inevitably follows, the information below may assist teachers, parents and community members in dealing with the impacts those sorts of incidents can have on the children we serve. While we can never understand such tragedies, we can act to make sure that our schools and local communities are safe and prepared to react in challenging times.
