Dear Upshur County Families,

Like you, we are shocked and deeply saddened by the news of the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. We share in the heartbreak for the families who have lost a loved one due to this senseless act of violence.

Schools should and must be a place where students are and feel completely safe and secure. We continue to work with local law enforcement to further increase safety and security.

We know that our students and staff will process this news in different ways. Counselors are available at each of our school buildings to assist students who may need some extra comfort and support. We strongly encourage our students to stop by their school’s counseling office at any time.

Please join us in keeping the students, staff, and families of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District in our thoughts and prayers at this time.


Dr. Sara Lewis-Stankus
