Burnsville School District Responds to Connecticut School Shootings

Burnsville-Eagan-Savage Schools posted a note of sympathy on its website Friday in the wake of a series of shootings at a Newtown, Connecticut school that has left over 20 people dead.

In the aftermath of a series of shootings at a school on the East Coast that left 27 people dead as of Friday afternoon, officials at the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District expressed their condolences and said the district would continue to make student and teacher safety a top priority.

From a post on ISD 191’s website:

The tragic school shooting in Connecticut today has shaken all of us and may especially affect children. 

The safety of our students and staff members is always our top priority. We have and will continue to work closely with local law enforcement agencies to create comprehensive school security and emergency response plans. 

If you need additional information about safety measures at your child's school, please contact your principal.

The district also offered links to several organizations offering advice to help children cope with the shootings, such as the National Association of School Psychologists, which offered these suggestions for talking with children about violence

The district is one of many local voices to chime in. See a live feed of Twin Cities Twitter reactions here.
