Coping With the Newtown Tragedy
EducationWorld, along with the nation, mourns the loss of 26 innocent lives following the profound tragedy that took place on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. We share the school and community’s grief, express our deepest sympathies and hope to contribute in whatever way possible to survivors’ efforts to cope at this unimaginably difficult time.
To help in talking with and supporting children affected by this traumatic event, we’ve posted a special article that contains resources for school staff and families: http://www.educationworld.com/a_admin/resources-coping-with-newtown-school-tragedy.shtml.
We’ve also set up a forum for educators to share ideas and support each other: http://community.educationworld.com/content/newtown-tragedy.
In addition, schools are encouraged to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request additional information and resources. We will do everything we can to assist administrators, teachers, students and parents as we collectively heal from this crisis.
