APS staff has received questions about how schools are helping students process news about Ukraine. We have staff and students with family or cultural ties to Ukraine and Russia, and many U.S. military-connected families and our focus is on supporting and maintaining safe spaces for all. To help students better understand this event, we provided age-appropriate resources for teachers to use as a guide. Here are some parent resources:
- How to Talk to Kids About the Ukraine Invasion: This PBS article discusses how to talk to preschool and elementary-aged children.
- From the American Psychological Association:
- Common Sense Media: How to Talk to Kids About Violence, Crime, and War
