Elementary School Teacher Death

Start Date: 09/25/2019


HOPE was asked by the OCDE Crisis Response Network to respond to a Elementary school to console staff and students after the unexpected death of a special education teacher. We arrived at 0830 and met with the principle and her staff. We were then escorted to the home room of the special education teacher who had passed. We met with the substitute teacher and the students affected by the death. The students were in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. The students sat on the floor and interacted with Henry until the next set of students arrived. The next set of students laid on the floor and interacted with Henry. At about 1000 we left the school.
