Coping with Tragedies

Hurricanes

After a hurricane hits, it is common for power being out, phone lines to be down or cell phone towers being down. Some students may be trapped in Norfolk after just leaving home for the first time. It may be difficult, especially for students who come from out of town or out-of state to call home, so let parents know you will try to let them know you are ok as soon as you can, but won't be able to be in frequent contact. It might be good to set up a time when you will try to contact them.
