Uvalde Tragedy

Posted by Dr. Mark Henry on 5/24/2022

Dear CFISD Community,

As news of another heartbreaking act of violence on a school campus unfolds, I extend my sincerest sympathy to the community of Uvalde, Texas, dealing with this tragedy.

We want our schools to be the safest places our students and staff can be. CFISD continually reviews emergency procedures and protocols. We will remain on high alert with greater visibility of CFISD police officers and administrators for the next two days. We encourage students to report any suspicious behaviors to a staff member or to the CFISD Tipline.

Several of our schools have already distributed resources to parents and guardians who are deciding how to share this news with their children. Our guidance and counseling department has provided some articles that should provide guidance:

NASP - Talking to Children About Violence 

APA - How much news coverage is OK for children 

NCTSN - Tips For Parents On Media Coverage
