That's the first thing. Second is to say thank you to the Little Rock School District. The district's administration worked over the weekend to assure parents that safety has always been a top concern there, and will especially be so this week.
I'm sure other districts are taking similar steps, but as an LRSD parent, these are the communications I've appreciated firsthand:
- A very detailed phone message outlining all the steps school personnel take to guarantee safety and how those efforts will be ramped up this week.
- Facebook posts assuring the same thing.
- An article by a school counselor on the LRSD homepage with tips for parents to help their children deal with the tragedy and the scary feelings that can occur in its aftermath.
Well done, and many thanks!
