To the Zervas Community,
The recent events involving an Underwood teacher have presented significant challenges to all members of the Newton Public School staff and parents in all Newton Schools, including Zervas. The event described below will be an opportunity for all of us to come together and learn more about how we can personally deal with the impact of the events as well as how to talk to our children about them. I encourage all interested Zervas parents to attend this meeting.
Community meeting: Working with children and families following an unforeseen and upsetting event
Dear Newton Community Members:
The events this week have probably been among the most upsetting and trying that the system has experienced in quite a while. Many of us have had trouble processing the allegations, because they are so far beyond our comprehension. We also need to recognize that this event has had an impact throughout the City.
Next Tuesday night, January 24th, we will hold a community meeting at Newton North for members of the broader Newton community. The meeting will provide an opportunity to ask questions and hear from both law enforcement authorities and mental health experts. Representatives from each of our school buildings will be present at the meeting.
We will continue to provide information to you as we work together for our children and for each other during this very difficult time.
