LBUSD Stands With Children and Families Impacted by Events in the Middle East
Long Beach Unified condemns any and all acts of terrorism and violence currently taking place in Israel. Our thoughts are with the Jewish and Palestinian communities and everyone impacted by the catastrophic and unfortunate events in the Middle East. We recognize that this is an extremely difficult time for our school communities and extend our support to students and staff who may need it. There are counselors available at every school campus, and our middle and high school students are welcome at their schools’ Wellness Centers for additional support.
Below are helpful tools on how to talk to children about the impacts of these events.
