Question Detail

With the recent, tragic event that happened in Florida, how do you help your students feel safe?

We recently had 2 false fire alarms; one the day after the Florida school shooting and the other three days after that. My students did not want to leave the classroom either time due to fear of a school shooter. On top of that, this week we had three students arrested at their homes (with weapons found) for threatening our school. My students are on edge regarding their safety, and I am at a lost for words to help them feel safe here at school.

      I am absolutely heartbroken by the horrific school shooting in Florida. It is more critical than ever to make students feel welcomed at school. Many of your students may come to school with strong emotions and questions and we must provide a safe space for them to cope with this traumatic event.
