The Colorado Department of Public Safety mourns the loss of the victims that were killed in the supermarket shooting in Buffalo, NY, and elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. We pray for the recovery of all the victims. We also recognize the trauma this may cause many others as two more horrific shootings impact our entire nation. The Colorado School Resource Center (CSSRC) has gathered these resources for parents and school staff. We urge you to protect children from too much exposure to the news. Please also take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
