Our Hearts Are Grieving With Orlando
District 70 Dear Families and Staff,

At a time when people across the nation should be valuing their time with family and friends and beginning some of the joyful activities that come with the onset of summer, a large group of young adults in the Orlando community will never experience such joy. The media is fully covering the horrific events that recently took place in a city that proudly houses "the happiest place on earth." As an educator, I am often looking to learn, understand and teach. Sometimes, however, there is no understanding of senseless acts of violence and there are no words. As such, often times when tragedies strike, parents and staff are often at a loss for defining or recognizing how to address such scenarios when questioned by young children.

The following sites, including a favorite from Fred Rogers, shared from generationOn, is a keeper, worth tucking away should it ever, unfortunately, be needed: Calming children after scary news, Fred Rogers on tragic events, Terrorism and children conversations that matter, and Helping children feel safe.

Our hearts go out those grieving loss in the Orlando community.
