A horrific tragedy occurred yesterday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
Our hearts are with the educators, students, and families of Robb Elementary School and the entire Uvalde community in Texas during this incredibly devastating time.
There are no words to articulate this unimaginable loss.
Halifax County Schools are committed to creating a safe and positive learning environment. With our social-emotional support through in-school counseling and our anti-bullying policy, we work proactively to support students and address the needs of the whole student and behaviors that could become unsafe.
We encourage families to talk to their children and listen to their concerns.
If your child feels unsafe, anxious, or needs to speak with someone, our staff is ready to provide the necessary support to assist your child.
We are grateful for the support and partnership with our local law enforcement and standard security measures.
With the end of the school year quickly approaching, we want everyone to know that nothing is more important than providing a safe school environment for our students.
We are committed to making the final week a positive experience for everyone.
Our thoughts are with the families and community of Uvalde and the state of Texas.
