WRDSB Response to Synagogue Attack
October 30th, 2018
By now we have all heard of the news about the terrible attack that took place in Pittsburgh this past Saturday. This tragedy undoubtedly has had an impact on the students, parents and staff we welcome to our buildings every day. We are particularly mindful of the affect this event, and other actions around the world have had on Jewish students and staff, families and allies.
As an expression of sympathy and support for the community of Pittsburgh and the broader Jewish faith community, flags at the Education Centre and WRDSB schools will fly at half-mast.
The impact of an attack like this can be difficult for many and bring up strong feelings of stress and anxiety. If you are struggling with this recent news, please know that we have many supports available in our schools for you to connect to. Your teachers, guidance counsellors, CYWs, social worker and other staff can assist – reach out if needed.
