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.
