The National Association of School Psychologists has shared a guide with all Connecticut Schools including tips and best practices for parents and teachers following school and community violence.  It has very good advice for teachers and parents on what to do for children when a national tragedy occurs.

For parents going to your child’s school, please understand that it may be less convenient to enter as you may have done in the past.  Also, do not be surprised to see police cruisers that may be parked outside.  Police officers will be visiting schools often throughout the day and week.

Parents should not hesitate to call the office of your student’s school if you feel your child needs extra attention during this national tragedy.  We want to ensure that all of our students are supported in whatever way is necessary.
