What to do after a school shooting

The Robb Elementary School Shooting: Navigating the Aftermath

Yesterday’s Robb Elementary School shooting is absolutely devastating. As we navigate the emotional process today, we know and want to share that there are resources to help you and your family and/or you and your school/community. We work with people who have been involved in a school shooting. These events hurt; we are nearing decade two of working to improve school safety. Specifically, in the area of communications. We are one small piece in the school safety toolbelt, as we say, doing what we can to help make children safer.
Knowingly, children see and hear all forms of media. After events like yesterday, limitation to their exposure to the media’s coverage of a school shooting is necessary. Discussing said events with them is helpful and so is this article:

Fortunately, SchoolSAFE is in Colorado, a state that is very proactive with school safety. Take measures to improve safety in schools. These measures include whichever tool on the toolbelt the school needs. Funding helps schools get the necessary resources for a safer environment.

Please contact your local representative to advocate for improvement, contact members of congress; every voice matters. Not sure where to start? Click here.

This is a very small sample of what can be done to help. Thoughts and prayers are never enough but our hearts are with the town of Uvalde.
