Lawrence County CUSD #20 Blog to Parents/Guardians Regarding Tragedy in Newtown CT
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of the terrible tragedy that occurred last Friday in Newtown CT. To honor those affected by this terrible event, all three attendance centers on Monday December 17, 2012 will have a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives. The district will fly all flags at half staff throughout the rest of this week. Guidance counselors, social workers and other staff will be available for any student who may need assistance in dealing with the many emotions that will surely run throughout our community and nation during the coming days, weeks and months. As a parent of three young children, I will be holding them a little tighter and letting them know how much they are loved as often as possible. I encourage all parents and guardians to do the same for your child. If you need any assistance regarding addressing any questions your child may have feel free to contact your child's building principal and he/she will direct you to resources that are appropriate. I pray for the children and adults who lost their lives. I pray for the families and communities effected by this horrible crime. I pray for the healing of our country as we move forward.
