Dear Colleagues,

Many of us have been left reeling by the news of yet another senseless mass shooting, this one at a school in Parkland, Florida. Students may be frightened by what they hear on the news. Teachers and parents may be uncertain how to address children's concerns. They likely have anxieties of their own, too.

To help you assist students and other members of your community who need support, the NAIS team compiled several resources below. As the caregivers attending to the needs of other people, you may also need support. I hope you will reach out to your larger NAIS network.

The willingness to be there for others in times of struggle and to nurture empathy is a hallmark of our community. Every day our schools support children and help them succeed. The connections you create with students are vital to that success. Thank you so much for your incredible work.


Donna Orem
