Tomorrow, November 6th-Election Day, is a work day for teachers and there is no school for students. Haynes Bridge is a polling place (and may be yours!) as well as many other schools in Fulton County.
Have you taken the time to vote yet? If not, make sure to get to your polling place tomorrow to vote. This is a great opportunity to share this experience with your child(ren). Get them used to going to the polls now so that when they turn 18 they are excited to be able to vote on their own.
Two weekends ago, our nation experienced political, racial, and religious hatebased tragedies and crimes. This is not the first time and unfortunately will not be the last. As adults, we may struggle with figuring out how to deal with the effect these type of events on our lives. For our children, this can be even more difficult as they struggle to figure out how to cope with the effect these events have on their lives. To assist our staff and families with helping our students, Fulton County Schools, shared several resources. Please see below for articles that you may find helpful. Additionally, the ADL www.adl.org
has many resources. National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) Tips for Parents and Teachers: Talking to Children about Violence https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources/school-safety
