Schools Deal With Tragedy

Unfortunately, the death of a student or recent graduate is a sad truth in schools. There are no magic bullets and no formula for how to deal with such tragedy. All schools try and provide counseling when students need it, and there are certain standard procedures recommended by experts, but each case is unique.

Students are very resilient and many times handle tragedy better than we expect. The outpouring of compassion from the community is overwhelming in times such as these. Schools receive many different of types of help from the community and it is wonderful to see how people work together to try and comfort those affected most by such tragedy. Memorials, plaques, or flowers will not bring back students but working together school communities can possibly provide some degree of comfort to family and friends.
