Highland Park Tragedy

Dear District 28 families:

The tragic event that occurred today in our neighboring community of Highland Park leaves us in shock and mourning. 

We hope you and your families are safe. Given the proximity, all of our community members are affected directly or indirectly by this terrible act of violence. We are working in collaboration with our community partners and township school districts to coordinate counseling support, assess the needs of our community, and determine what we can do over the coming days. 

If you need any immediate support for your child, please contact us  and a member of our administrative and student services team will reach out to you as soon as possible. 

The National Association of School Psychologists has a resource for talking to your children about violence that you may find helpful during this time. 

The Northbrook Park District has canceled all programs for tomorrow. Our summer school session ended last Thursday. True North will communicate any changes to its programming directly with families who would be impacted.

We will share additional information as needed.

Jason Pearson, Ed.D.
Superintendent  of Schools
