Schools host crisis counseling for public today in wake of townwide lockdown
Crisis counselors will be available Monday to meet with anyone feeling “anxiety and the effects of post-traumatic stress” in the wake of the lockdown of the town’s school Friday, school officials announced Monday morning.
All 17 of the town’s schools were locked down Friday morning in reaction to a series of phoned-in threats, which proved to be false. However, classes were dismissed early and all after-school activities as a result.
The counselors will be available from 3 to 7 p.m. in the libraries of both Fairfield Ludlowe and Fairfield Warde high schools, officials said.
There will also be information about community resources and talking points for addressing children’s concerns at the counseling sessions.
