Dear Quincy Families,

I’m writing to you today to respond to the school shooting that took place this morning at Freeman High School, just outside of Spokane. Our hearts go out to those students, teachers and principals who were affected by this terrible tragedy.

Even in the wake of tragedy, schools continue to be one of the safest places for children to be on a daily basis. In the QSD we are serious about making sure our students feel safe at school. Below are some conversational tips to use with your children. Dr. Michele Borba, a children’s psychologist, suggests the following tips to help your child process these types of events.
• Turn off the TV and media on the school shooting when children are present. Image can negatively impact children regardless of your zip code.
• Talk to your child tonight or as soon as you see them. Open with “What have you heard?” Children need the right facts. YOU, not their peers provide the best source.
• Children need to know it’s OK to share their feelings. It’s normal to be upset. Be calm and give only age appropriate information
• Don’t give more information than the child is ready to hear. More importantly, let your child know you’re there to listen.
• Don’t expect to help alleviate your child’s anxiety unless you keep your own in check. Children are calmer if we are calmer.
• Please don’t think because the child isn’t talking about the events that he/she didn’t hear about it.
• Give the information in small doses. Listen. Watch their response. Children need processing time. Children don’t need to know all the details and numbers. End with “I’m here for any questions you may have at any time.”
• Stick to family routines. This soothes the stress and helps children know that despite tragedy, the world goes on. The sun will come up tomorrow. Hug!
• When appropriate draw your child’s attention to heroism in the tragedy. Use police, teachers, doctors, etc so children see the goodness in the heartbreak.
• Children respond to tragic news differently. Let your child know their feelings are normal. Help he/she express them. Follow his/her lead.

We have reached out to the Freeman School District and will continue to offer our support in the wake of the shooting there. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us or your administration or supervisor if you have questions. I appreciate all that you do to keep our students safe!
