According to the Sherrard Superintendent, crisis plans were reviewed on Sunday by Sherrard administrators and counselors to help children cope with the loss of their classmates.

Richard Hutchison, a local psychologist in Moline says there are signs that parents need to watch for, “If they are bed wetting, really young kids tend to go in circles, when they are confused and anxious, worried about things, a change in appetite, sleeping habits, all those things.”

The Superintendent said they will be using the school district’s website to keep parents and the community updated on visitations and funeral plans.
