An update on support services the North Colonie Central School District is offering as a result of Tuesday’s fire on Schalren Dr. in Latham:
As the district continues to take every measure to support our students during this terrible time, staff and administrators have been meeting and utilizing all resources to help our children. A number of school counselors and school psychologists have met with students to help them understand and cope with their feelings and thoughts.
As we continue to support our students in the coming days, weeks and months, we encourage parents to talk with their children about what they are hearing and feeling. To help support parents, we have put together important material from the Community Hospice Grief Center of Albany County, as well as a link to the Dougy Center, a National Center for Grieving Children and Families. If you would like support or guidance beyond this information, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s school.
