A Message From OEA President Patricia Frost-Brooks On The Tragic Shootings At Sandy Hook Elementary School

“Innocent people, adults and young children, lost their lives in today’s tragedy in Newtown Connecticut. Violence and anger have violated the sense of safety we try to share with everyone who teaches and learns in our schools. We feel a deep sympathy with the families and community of Newtown, and we pray for the safety and well-being of all our students and teachers.”

The NEA Health Information Network has produced a very useful Crisis Guide which gives guidance on how to respond before, during and after a crisis. This step-by-step resource created by educators for educators can make it easier for NEA leaders and school district administrators and principals to keep schools safe — so teachers can teach and children can learn.
