A Message from Superintendent Joshua Starr Concerning the Tragedy in Connecticut
December 14, 2012
 

Today’s unspeakable tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, has saddened and shaken us all. As a father, I grieve for the families and the community of Newtown. As an educator, I know the worry and concern that such a tragedy sends throughout every community. We take the safety and security of our students and staff very seriously and work every day to make sure that our children are learning in a safe environment. We will continue to make safety a top priority.

 

The thoughts of the entire Montgomery County Public Schools family are with the families of Newtown who grieve tonight. We know that it is difficult for parents to talk about this kind of violence with their children. To assist in these conversations, we have posted some helpful resources on the front page of our website, www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org. In addition, school counselors will be available on Monday to help students or staff cope with the emotions and feelings that naturally occur following a such a tragedy.
