Coping with our Loss

Last week, our community lost one of our students. And one of our guided classes lost one of our classmates. This is not an easy thing, and may still be impacting you. If you are feeling any sense of loss, grief or other stress consider trying some of these coping strategies:

  • Talk to someone at school: Your counselor, social worker, dean, or trusted teacher
  • listen to music
  • writing/journaling
  • reading
  • watching a funny/favorite movie or tv show
  • going for a run
  • exercising
  • watching or playing sports
  • meditating
  • Talking and/or spending time with friends and family
  • organizing/cleaning
  • playing video games
  • yoga
  • singing around the house
  • a “do nothing” day (Ms. Weiss particularly suggests making a Do Nothing Saturday)
  • painting
  • knitting
  • sleeping
  • going out to dinner
  • doing something new
  • driving
  • playing musical instruments
  • buying music (free downloads, cd, itunes)

If you need to talk or feel at all overwhelmed, please come talk to me or one of your SST members (counselor, social worker, etc.)

While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, an officer was interrupted by a little boy about six years old. Looking up and down at his uniform, he asked, “Are you a cop?”
“Yes,” he replied and continued writing the report.“My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?”“Yes, that’s right,” he told him.“Well, then,” he said as he extended his foot towards the officer, “would you please tie my shoe?”
