Superintendent's message of support following the Texas school shooting

Families and Staff,

Like you, we are shocked and deeply saddened by the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Texas on Tuesday. We share in the heartbreak we are all feeling for the families who have lost a loved one due to this senseless act of violence.

School should and must be a place where students and staff feel completely safe and secure. We have multiple safety precautions in place in our schools, including locking all exterior doors, surveillance cameras, and a close relationship with local law enforcement and school resource officers. We also encourage you and your student to report anything suspicious or concerning to school staff or law enforcement, so we can investigate and take appropriate action.  

We know that children and teens will process this news in different ways. School Counselors are available to assist students who may need some extra support. We strongly encourage any students to stop by the counseling office at any time. 

We’ve also posted some resources on our website to help parents and staff talk with students and children about school shootings, their safety, and their feelings. 

Below are resources from the American School Counselor Association and National Association of School Psychologists for supporting students after a school shooting:

Staff members who need additional support should contact our Employee Assistance Program online or call 1-800-633-3353.

Please join us in keeping the students, staff, and families of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District in our thoughts at this time.
