Tucson, AZ., August 11, 2016.   Safe and Sound Schools, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering communities to learn how they can join hands, hearts, and minds to make schools safer, renewed its partnership for a 3rd year with Security100Summits K-12. Michele Gay, Co-Founder/Executive Director has been an advisory board member of the Summit for 3 years and will present this year on Reunification.  The Summit takes place November 30th – December 2nd in Tucson, Arizona.
In particular, Michele will share her personal experiences and professional perspective on reunifying a school community in the aftermath of crisis.  As an educator and Sandy Hook parent, Michele shares lessons learned and examines current reunification practices, models and resources to better prepare attendees for reunification planning and implementation in their school communities.
Michele shared, “Reunification is a critically important, often overlooked part of school emergency planning and practice.  Reuniting students and families in a safe and controlled manner in the aftermath of crisis is imperative to the physical and psychological safety of each member of the school community.”
