Helping Your Child Cope with Tragic Events

Please click for resources...

Journeying through a tragic event with your child, your family, your school and community is never an easy task.  It takes love, understanding, patience and lots of time.  There is nothing that can be said or done to make things right again.  If you would like your child to speak to their school counselor, please feel free to call the school to set up an appointment.

 

Below are some resources that may help parents have difficult conversations with their child:
