Today went well. My principal came in and talked to the class today and that really helped. She's a child psychologist by training and her coming in and sharing what she could and couldn't say really helped quite a bit. She told them what she could tell them, answered their questions really clearly and factually. It was so nice for them. Then our regular work really progressed way more smoothly! Thank goodness! Still lots of turmoil about all this but feeling way better.
