My heart is heavy, full of anger and pain as I write this message to you regarding the Texas Elementary School Shooting. Today, 21 people were killed; 19 children and 2 adults at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. I rarely share my political views but no one should be able to have immediate access to an assault weapon! President Biden shared this evening, “The idea that an 18-year old can buy two assault weapons is beyond wrong. We have to stand up against the industry.” Our President is correct. We all need to stand up against the gun industry. Our entire community is feeling the pain from the shooting. Our pain can lead to feelings of anxiety for our community. Our team of teachers and staff are here to love your child and provide support as needed. Below are a few helpful resources that may be helpful in talking with your child about these kinds of tragedies: How to Talk to Kids About School Shootings - Common Sense Media Helping your children manage distress in the aftermath of a shooting - American Psychological Association Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher and myself if you need additional resources for your child and family. We are in this together, our hearts are all with the educators, students, and families of Robb Elementary School and the entire Uvalde community in Texas. Let’s all hold our children extra tight tonight! Much Love, Amy
