Prayers for Uvalde, TX
Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire Uvalde, Texas community in the wake of the tragic loss suffered this week at Robb Elementary School. In the aftermath of Tuesday’s events, our teachers and staff focused on keeping our students safe, providing routines and normalcy, and addressing any student needs that arose. Our counselors are available to talk with students or their families as needed.
