How to Help When Shootings Occur at School

As a society we have grown tolerant of violence. It is almost acceptable. However, when it occurs in our schools I always ask...why? Why? Why? School is suppose to be a "safe" place. Why could someone come in and destroy that sanctity? I can go on and rant about violence, or I can help you help the children who will have worry and anxiety, fear and grief because basically they don't understand and someone has robbed them of their childhood by exposing them to something that they were not developmentally ready to handle. 

The link below provides four documents to assist you with the mental health needs of your students and the links to the Crisis Institute and American Hospice.

My heart goes out to the families and faculty of all schools that encounter violence on their campuses.
