Dear Parent or Guardian,

Our country has had a terrible shock as we awoke today to the news of the murders in Quebec City.  

You may be wondering how to support an upset or worried child in the wake of this tragic situation.  

Attached to this email is a list of things for you to consider prepared by our Chief Psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Paquette. These suggestions will help you know the best way to approach your child and to help them feel safe.

Our schools remain safe places where your child will always find support, be welcomed, and feel included. We encourage you to join us in prayer for the victims and their families. 

Sincerely,

Denise Andre

Director of Education
