Helping students during traumatic events

We understand that yesterday’s incident at the Capitol may be difficult for some students to understand and parents may have challenges while talking with their children. We encourage parents to visit our website for resources when talking to children about traumatic events. We also encourage parents contact their school counselors or LIFE counselors if they need assistance or advice when talking with their children about traumatic events.

We believe firmly that violence and destruction are never acceptable answers to disagreements or conflict. We teach our students to be supportive of one another and respectful of different viewpoints to create a culture of kindness and positivity. Every single staff member cares about our students and we are here to support our students.
