City schools will have counselors available to meet individually or in small groups to help students and staff process the shootings that happened recently in Uvalde, Buffalo and Baltimore.

This is following the school shooting that took place on May 24 at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas where it is reported that at least 19 students and two adults were killed.

The decision also comes after the grocery store shooting that took place on May 14 in Buffalo, New York where 10 African Americans were killed and the lives lost in Baltimore to gun violence every day.

Dr. Sonja Santelises said support will be tailored for age appropriateness and additional help will be available if needed.

Baltimore City Public Schools is hosting a Peace and Remembrance Day to honor city school students who have lost their lives to violence. It will take place on Thursday, May 26.
