    As today Wednesday, March 11, 2015 began we had the very difficult task of communicating to students and staff the tragic loss of a 5th grade student who died in a house fire on Tuesday, March 10, 2015. Staff met at 7:20 to plan for the difficult day and many of the students were personally read a letter by a staff member or myself to let them know that we are here to support them through the grieving process. Students have had access to our school Social Workers throughout today and this will continue for the rest of the week and beyond. We know that each individual grieves differently and we are here to support and assist them. We also look to give students the familiar daily structure of school which can be calming as well.

    Below is a link to a great resource that covers everything from Parent Conversations to Self-Care in times like this.

    Tyler Breen (One of our special friends!) is raising funds for
    FIRST (The Foundation for Ichthyosis & Related Skin Types). This patient advocacy group has been a very important part of Tyler's life since birth. They have not only connected Tyler and his family to other families around the world who share his rare skin condition, but they also raise funds for research towards better treatments and hopefully, one day, a cure!
