A Horrific Day

There are no words to convey the horror of today’s shootings in Connecticut. Our hearts and our deepest sympathies go out to Sandy Hook Elementary – its students and staff, as well as the families and wider community. The magnitude of this tragedy is almost beyond our ability to grasp. We hope you’ll encourage the children in your life to share their thoughts and feelings openly. We recognize how little we can do at a time like this, but we also hope we can offer some comfort by providing a safe, familiar outlet for kids. May we never have to write a blog post like this again.

    I wish my administration had written what you posted: “We hope you’ll encourage the children in your life to share their thoughts and feelings openly.
    Many districts, including mine, have urged teachers not to initiate conversations. I was hope my fourth graders could look at a Brain Pop dealing with senseless random acts of gun violence followed by what we hope will soon be a national refocus on gun control. Michael
