In an effort to help our school community, we have compiled a list of valuable resources to assist families and educators as we seek to understand the horrific events of yesterday. As parents ourselves, we understand the fear many parents and children face today and know the dinner-table conversations are filled with difficult questions that seemingly have no right answer.
Our prayers are with the Uvalde, Texas community and those worldwide who are scared and grieving today.
This list has been compiled from a variety of resources and our own experiences.
