PHPS would like to share our deepest condolences with the Tobin family and all those who have been touched by the Humboldt Broncos tragedy.
This is a tremendously sad event that those in our school community can relate to on multiple levels. We would like to encourage you and your family to seek out support and support one another. Talk to your children about what they are thinking, what they hear at school and what they see on social media.
If you have concerns, please talk to your child’s teacher or principal. The following organizations have also been identified as sources of help:
- Crisis/Distress Line Edmonton — 1.780.482.4357
- Mental Health Helpline — 1.877.303.2642
- Kids Help Phone — 1.800.668.6868
We have lowered the flags at our schools and division office in support.
On April 12 PHPS Regional Office staff wore jerseys to show support for those affected.
