As we continue to navigate the various tragedies touching our immediate communities and our country, we at EOC and MN Department of Education want to provide a variety of resources for families and educators if needed. We as a community believe in providing safe spaces for students and staff to process tragedy appropriately within our community. If you or your student need support during this time do not hesitate to reach out to a staff member.
