Wise Words From NASSP and Mr. Jefferson

In response to the incident at the school in Murrysville, Pa, NASSP has reprinted  a Strategic Safety blog on their website.  The blog is entitled “Sunshine: The Greater Part of Life” and offers recommendations to help students, staff and parents when a crisis occurs in their own school.

The title of the article comes from a comment made by Thomas Jefferson, “Friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.”  It is in that spirit that school communities must operate each day.
