Guidance

As many of you know, our BCS school community has suffered a tremendous loss with the sudden and unexpected death of our School Nurse, Chance Carlson.  If you or your child are in need of additional support, please reach out to me and I will do my best to assist you.  I have included some potentially helpful information below (from the book “When Someone Very Special Dies”) that may help you and your child(ren) to process any feelings of grief.
  • It is helpful for adults to model a healthy reaction to loss by expressing their own feelings to their child(ren).
  • Children may feel frightened and insecure because they sense the grief and stress of others, and feel powerless to help.  They will need additional love, support, and structure in their daily routine.
  • When someone dies, children often worry about themselves and others dying.  They need an explanation of death that is concrete and uses terms such as “die” and “dead.”  Avoid using vague terms such as “going away” or “sleeping.”
  • Help children learn to recognize, name, accept and express feelings.
  • A child’s grief may be difficult to recognize as children may express feelings of grief more in behavior than in words. (Feelings of helplessness, anxiety, anger, and fear are common and often may be acted out)
Thank you.
