Medina teachers were sensitive in explaining loss of colleague to elementary students

I attended school last week at Oak Orchard Elementary with my granddaughter who is in Mrs. Lonnen’s class. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at how well the staff explained the situation to the kids and allowed the kids to react and ask questions.

But also I realized these adults’ hearts must have been breaking during this. They handled everything and everyone with skill and softness. No one can prepare for tragedy but when people do so well, it is a blessing well noted.

Thank you Medina school staff for meeting our children’s needs. My thoughts are with you during your time of mourning.
