Tri-State school officials prepared for kids' questions about shooting

Posted: Updated:

The tragic news from Newtown, Connecticut may have some Tri-State children worried about walking into their own school building Monday morning, but some local officials say they're prepared to make sure kids know they're safe.

Officials with the EVSC say they're prepared to answer questions of curious or frightened students.

Some local leaders believe many children will be a little confused and somewhat fearful for their safety in the coming days.

The EVSC says they're prepared to comfort students when classes resume today.

Marsha Jackson with the EVSC says, "There's no specific plan for this morning."

They aren't having an assembly to talk about what happened in Connecticut, but if children do have questions, she says they have a crisis team to handle it.

That team is made up of counselors.

Representatives say they believe no child should be afraid to go to school and that this time of uncertainty and fear will pass. It's just a matter of time.
