Letter from Superintendent Dr. Nellie Meyer Regarding the Las Vegas Shootings

Hello MDUSD Families, Staff and Community,

 

The senseless shootings in Las Vegas last night has impacted communities across the country, directly and indirectly.  Our hearts go out to the families and friends of those killed or injured. While this is hard for all of us to understand, it is especially disturbing and confusing to our children.  And while not all have a personal connection to the tragedy, I wanted to reaffirm our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of all of our students, staff, and families. Counseling and other assistance is always available to any student, parent, or staff member who would like some support or assistance.

 

Below please find some resources on how to talk to your child about this or other tragedies.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Nellie Meyer

Superintendent
