Talking to Students About Tragedy

Our hearts are heavy as we send our deepest condolences to the families and community affected by the senseless tragedy that happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida Wednesday afternoon.

Events like this happen all too often in our country, and we know our families – and our students – are impacted by the 24-hour coverage on the news, Internet and on social media. We also know it’s hard to talk to our children when this happens, so we are providing these age-appropriate tips from the National Association of School Psychologists. Our school counselors are also available to talk to you or your children if you need additional support.
