In times of tragedy it can be challenging to find the right words to say or the right place to turn for assistance. We have compiled some resources in the hope that it will be helpful to your school community.
The NCEA posted a prayer service online, along with articles such as "Talking With Your Kids About a School Shooting."
Several schools have worked with Grief Weavers in the past and said that the program has helped their students.
Maria Trozzi, of Joanna’s Place, is also incredible. Her organization typically helps people on the South Shore, but she is open to speaking with schools in other regions to help out.
