For parents: Reassuring your child in times of crisis

The safety, well being, and success of our students are our top priorities here in Wake County.

Our hearts go out to the families and community in Connecticut who have been affected by today’s tragic incident.

In times like these, children may be worried about their safety and the safety of their loved ones. We encourage parents to view these helpful guidelines for parents from the National Association of School Psychologists.

This is also a good time to review safety procedures with your child. Each school in the Wake County Public School System follows a protocol of lockdown procedures in case of emergency. It’s important for parents to be familiar with the procedures as well.
