Dear TMSA and QCSS Community,

I am writing this message with grief and disbelief after yet another school shooting, this time at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. Our hearts go out to the students, families, and staff at Robb Elementary.

We take very seriously the potential emotional impact an event like this may have on our students. Your school staff is prepared to meet with anyone who needs help processing this incident.

In addition, below are two resources from the American Psychological Association and Common Sense Media that parents and caregivers may find helpful in talking about this tragedy at home.

We want to assure you that safety is our highest priority. We work closely with local law enforcement and have many safety protocols in place. We always encourage all members of our community to speak up when they have a concern.

We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure our campuses are safe spaces where all of our students can learn and thrive in harmony with themselves, with others, and with the natural environment.

Thank you for being a constant partner in protecting the safety of our students, employees, families, and community.

Sincerely,

Ben Karaduman
Superintendent
