Helpful Information for Helping Teens Cope with National Tragedies

iStock Group Holding HandsThe recent act of violence in Las Vegas -- the largest mass shooting in US history -- can be unnerving for students, creating feelings of confusion, sadness and anxiety. As news reports of this frightening event unfold in the media, it is important that we all -- families, teachers and staff -- talk with students about their feelings and thoughts around this national tragedy and the many others in recent news. The SMUHSD team would like to share some links to tips from the National Education Association as originally offered by the National Association of School Psychologists and from the Orange County Department of Education. Both offer helpful information and guidance for families. If you have any concerns about your student, please contact your school's health and wellness coordinators.
