Darien Schools Send Tips on Helping Kids Cope with School Shooting

Darien Schools have this set of suggestions about helping your young child cope with news about the school shooting in Newtown.


Schools Superintendent Stephen Falcone has sent the attached list of suggestions for helping children cope with the Newtown school shooting news and sent this message with it: 

The tragedy in Newtown will require all of us to support our children to the best of our ability.  I have attached a document that provides useful information.  Please know that we will be reviewing all of our safety precautions and security systems.

 Also, we will be preparing to support the emotional well-being of our students, particularly upon their return on Monday.  

If your child experiences anxiety around this issue and/or returning to school, please reach out to building administrators so our staff, including our mental health professionals, can provide guidance and support.
