Olathe School Shooting – Message from IAKC

Many of you might have heard about an incident that happened in our community couple of days ago. Every time we hear about an act of school violence, especially the ones which are this close, it shakes us mentally and emotionally. There was an active shooter in the Olathe East Campus that resulted in people getting injured. We know that many of the children in our community go to Olathe East campus so as their parents as faculty, part-time staff, and volunteers.
While no community is immune to the senseless violence of these kinds, we know that these are the times we need to stick together as one community and share the resources which might help others in the community to get through.
As these incidents, unfortunately, happen in our community, please know that the schools in our community are equipped for being a support system the kids could rely on, and should parents find a need for their children to get support, do not hesitate to talk to your school facility.
Below is the resource link for such a support system provided by the Olathe school district and Blue Valley school district for its children. As stated above, there is nothing more important we can do than come together to support each other, our families, and our neighbors for the benefit of our children in our community.
