Dear Schodack Community,
I am quickly checking in with you at the end of what has been a difficult day for school families and employees alike.
Robb Elementary School and Uvalde, TX, are far away geographically, but something like this hits close to home for every family with school-age children and everyone who works in a school. It is not only devastating to hear about families experiencing this but it is also frightening and puts many of us on edge since school should be one of the places where we feel the safest.
Please know that ensuring your children have a safe place to learn and our employees have a safe place to work is one of the most important things we do here.
Tragedies like this are not easy topics to talk about with students and some have likely already brought up Uvalde at home or in the classroom. I am sharing the resources linked below to utilize as needed in the hope that they may help with discussions with your child or student.
Please feel free to reach out to your school counselor, building principals or me if you would like to talk more about any of this.
