Dear Clark families,
It's been a tough week and our entire community is saddened by the horrors that unfolded Wednesday in Florida. We hope you received the letter your child brought home from Superintendent Mitchell outlining our safety plans. At Clark, our teachers all took time to circle up Friday with their advisories and communities to check in with students and each other. Many started with a mindfulness session, followed by asking how students were feeling about events this week, and asking them how we can take care of each other here at Clark. We'd like to share with you a helpful resource that can guide conversations with your students about these issues. If we can help your child in any way, please email or call to let us know.
