Message About Events in Orlando, Florida - from Director John Malloy and Chair Robin Pilkey
"Sadly, we have once again seen another senseless act of violence unfold in the world, this time in Orlando, Florida. The thoughts of the Toronto District School Board community are not only with the victims, families and friends impacted by this act of terror, but the larger LGBTQ community that was targeted by an act of hate. As the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, this story will no doubt be prevalent in the news in the upcoming days. With this in mind, our Professional Support Services staff have prepared the following tips that may help with discussions with your children, who may experience a wide range of reactions and emotions at this time."
