Resources for The Post-Trauma Response
As our community continues to heal and work through the heart-wrenching fires and Borderline shooting this past November, know that our processing of traumatic events takes time. Over the coming weeks, it's important to have a clear understanding of what the healing process might look like for your child. We highly recommend the Parenting a Child Who Has Experienced Trauma factsheet that was compiled by the Child Welfare Information Gateway. Other supportive resources can be accessed through the Community360.me website. Check out the Counseling Corner episode from the Community 360 Podcast below as a guide for self-care over the coming weeks.
As both you and your children continue the healing process, please reach out to our staff with anything we can do to support you.

Students Receive Support from Virginia
A group of 5th grade students from Westridge Elementary School in Virginia reached out to Willow Elementary School and sent a banner and cards with messages of encouragement to Willow staff and students to support them following the Woolsey Fire. The banner of a Willow tree featured below, stated “Willows bend, but don’t break.” This heartwarming outreach touched many in the Willow community. Willow counselor Caity Katz shared that parents came up to her sharing, “What Westridge did for us brings tears to my eyes, it's so kind.” See the photos below of this heartwarming gesture from across the country.
