Recent Tragedy in Texas
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 9:00 AM

Many students will have questions about the recent tragedy in Texas. It’s normal to feel anxious and concerned after high-profile public tragedies, especially in this time of fast-paced, unvetted information. Minneapolis Public Schools does everything it can to keep our schools safe and secure. All Minneapolis Public Schools have emergency response plans. Recent events remind us of the need to keep these plans current and to regularly review them with staff and students.

We also want to help students cope in the aftermath of events like this. Here are some tips to help families and teachers minimize stress and grief.

If your student needs any extra support please feel free to reach out to our school Counselors and Social Workers.

In Peace,
Principal Rathke
