There is a “YouCaring” website launched in memory of Jill Jackett noting the District as the organizer. Please know that as a District, we are unable to raise funds in this way and did not organize the page. A report has been filed with the website. In the event that the effort is valid, the name of the organizer will be adjusted. We urge you to be cautious when donating to such sites.
As a District, we are a member of the Consortium on Trauma, Illness and Grief. Through this Consortium, we have resources that may support you in talking with your children about our recent loss. A link to those resources is as follows: http://www.tigconsortium.org/grief-loss. Additional information for talking with students of different ages about death and grief can be found by clicking on this link. These are resources that are available to our staff. We hope you also find these materials to be supportive of your family and you during this difficult time.
