Social Workers Help Address Newtown Tragedy in ISD 281 Elementary Schools

The district also sent a letter to parents on Friday, offering condolences and words of advice to parents.

In order to continue to provide resources and assistance to Robbinsdale Area Schools families, school counselors will be present in all ISD 281 elementary schools on Monday as students return to class after a shooter killed 20 children  at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday.

Robbinsdale Area Schools officials also took to Twitter Monday morning to offer resources to parents who are struggling to communicate the news with their children.

A link to the Fred Rogers Company provided information on discussing tragic events with children. School officials also posted a PDF with information from the National Association of School Psychologists about talking about violence with children.
