In light of recent events in the Middle East, some of our students and their families may be concerned about friends and family living in the region or upset by news reporting on the conflict.

As always, the emotional health and well-being of our students is a primary concern and we remain committed to providing support for students and staff who may be impacted by the conflict.

Listed below are a number of resources parents and staff members can use to help students in dealing with trauma, violent world events, or conflict.
