Dear Daniels Run Community,

I share in your grief, fear, and frustration about the tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. These events impact us all in personal ways. One thing we all have in common is our condemnation of these senseless acts of violence. 

Another thing we have in common is our commitment to keeping our schools, and the students and employees within them, safe. FCPS, City of Fairfax and Daniels Run ES work to make critical safety upgrades to our buildings, plan and practice day-to-day safety and security measures, and respond swiftly to any concern or possible event. 

Your child may have questions and concerns after learning about this tragic news. The National Association of School Psychologists has a helpful resource (in multiple languages) for families and educators to support them when talking with students about school violence. If you or your child need additional support, please reach out to our clinical team. 

We stand together, as the Daniels Run community and in solidarity with the Robb Elementary School community.
