Resources for Working With Students After a Traumatic Event

We have a responsibility as a community of educators to discuss, and combat violence and intolerance. We must continue to treat each other with respect as we strive to become a truly diverse and equitable society.

The Troy High school counselors and social workers are available to provide counseling and support to the students. Please let the counseling staff or administration know if you think any students may need immediate support. 

Here are some valuable resources that may be helpful for you to discuss this incident in your classrooms.
