LISD Reacts to Virginia Tech Tragedy

As the nation feels the loss of so many killed on a college campus in Virginia this week school counselors everywhere are trying to reassure kids that school is a safe place.

Larry Hess, director of guidance and counseling at LISD, offers this advice to parents, don't let the images kids see on TV go unexplained.  

"Talking to your children and then most importantly listening to them because they will tell you the concerns that they have. Especially for young kids, you should tell them that these are horrific events but they are rare they don't happen all the time, we are safe, we can go back to school and go back to the routine of our lives," says Hess.

Hess also reminds parents that the timing of this tragedy couldn't be worse. Because kids need to give their complete attention this week to the TAKS test.
