CSCA President Kim Traverso sent the following email to CSCA members yesterday regarding how School Counselors can help in this time of tragedy:
We are devastated by this unthinkable tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. CSCA's thoughts and prayers are with the entire Newtown community.
The CT State Department has responded in coordination with the NewtownSuperintendent, the Governor's Office and other state departments in providing assistance.
As we come together to collectively support all of those affected by this senseless and tragic event, we must also remember to support each other through this process.
I will be sending a formal letter to the Newtown Superintendent offering additional school counseling support. ***Update: Thank you to all the counselors who have volunteered to offer additional counseling support to the Newtown community. At this time, we have enough volunteers.
Kimberly Traverso, President
Connecticut School Counseling Association
