Our thoughts are with the Newtown, Conn., community as it mourns the loss of students and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School. These events leave an indelible mark on our hearts and minds. The extensive media coverage can have an impact on students, and it is important for school staff and parents to have information to assist children in coping with the news. Here are a few resources:
- "Helping Children Cope With Tragedy" Report to Parents
- "Coping With Loss" Principal magazine article
- Strategies for Talking and Listening from PBS Parents
- the National Association of School Psychologists site
Thank you to the National Association of Elementary School Principals and National School Public Relations Association for providing resources.
