    Dear MS 217 Families 


    The video release on Friday of the killing of Tyre Nichols at the hands of Memphis Police officers is deeply disturbing and traumatizing for all members of our school community.  Our MS 217 Crisis Team staff members will be available to support students, their families, and staff in processing this horrific event beginning tomorrow upon student arrival.  In addition, our staff will provide a structured opportunity to engage our students in conversation on the matter while being respectful to all.  Our goal is to provide our students the opportunity to speak about the emotion they, or their friends, or their family maybe be experiencing and to validate their voice.   


    We have shared the following resource with our staff today and will utilize it to support conversations with students beginning tomorrow.  



    Please remind your child that as a member of our school community they are never alone.  Their emotions are real, and they matter greatly.  If at any time your child expresses a concern, please inform our school so that together we may support your child 


    Thank you
