The unfolding of events at the U.S. Capitol yesterday has left many of us, including our children, seeking comfort and reassurance today. Please remember to take care of yourselves and one another during this time. Our community values civil discourse, respect, and unity, and we hope you find solace in knowing that we are here for each other. We would like to provide you with a few resources that may help you to guide conversations with your child(ren) in the coming days and weeks ahead. As always, please remember that Sabine Bergwall, School Counselor, is available to answer any questions or concerns you have.
