Resource Central

In Resource Central, you will find documents and links to informative and educational websites that have been extremely useful for schools to use during a crisis.  Many of the documents are great informational handouts for parents/guardians and school staff, along with reminder checklists.  Other documents are examples of letters, memos that may be necessary when informing parent/guardians and school students of a death or other traumatic events.

The effect of a disaster or traumatic event goes far beyond its immediate devastation. Just as it takes time to reconstruct damaged buildings, it takes time to grieve and rebuild our lives. Life may not return to normal for months, or even years, following a disaster or traumatic event. There may be changes in living conditions that cause changes in day-to-day activities, leading to strains in relationships, changes in expectations, and shifts in responsibilities. These disruptions in relationships, roles, and routines can make life unfamiliar or unpredictable.
