I am sure that many of you are following the tragedy in Connecticut on Friday. As you can imagine, I have struggled to write a coherent post that is sensitive to potential readers of all ages.
As I work to come to terms with this terrible event, know that I am also working to find resources to support staff members as they could possibly receive questions from children next week. I can assure you that the Amelia Elementary staff will do all that we can to respond sensitively to questions.
For those of you who are struggling with how to respond to questions from your children throughout the following days, I offer some resources that I have found this afternoon. I recommend that you read these links carefully so that you can filter through appropriate responses for the age of your children.
Please know that we will be focused on keeping our school environment safe and on learning… at the same time be prepared to respond to questions that we may receive. We care deeply about your children.
Our thoughts are with the students, families, staff and community of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
