Obviously sad for the families directly affected by these tragedies, but not reeling.
I am however fascinated by how the school is reacting and handling this. Evidently there is a crisis team in place at the school. Bunch of adults with notebooks at the ready, talking to kids and documenting their responses. Probably the usual way these situations are handled this day and age. My kids’ take is that it’s causing crowd sourced hysteria in a population already given to drama. Classes are being held but not much in the way of academics is being accomplished. How can it, under the circumstances?
I’ve never had any trouble communicating with my kids, but I never thought I’d have to have this fucking conversation with them.
