Windsor Schools Offer Resources in Wake of Newtown Shooting

The district is offering support from counselors to social workers in addition to literature to help speak to a range of school-age children and adults in the aftermath of Friday's Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

Parents of Windsor Public Schools students received a message from the district and Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Villar Friday following the news of 20 children and 6 adults killed at Newtown's Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Along with revealing plans to address the state of security at public schools in town, Villar's message offered district resources to help students and adults cope in the wake of one of the nation's most gruesome shootings.

"Our school counselors, social workers and psychologists will be available to assist you and your children as needed," wrote Villar, who included a link to the district's website.
