Talking to Children about Violence - Resources for You
MPCSD and its schools are increasing mental health resources as needed during this difficult time. To help you manage difficult conversations at home, here are some resources: National Association of School Psychologists tips on talking to kids about violence; Common Sense Media talking to kids about violence, crime and war; Common Sense Media talking to kids about school shootings; American Psychological Association helping kids manage distress after a shooting. If you need other help, please start by asking your school counselor or administrator.
Hillview Turf Replacement - Community Input on Options

Turf samples are on display at the District Office through May 31 (office closed Monday, May 30 for Memorial Day). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your input, questions, or preference for which option to choose.
