WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Monday will be the first day back to school for students and staff at Bak Middle School of the Arts since details of Kimberly Lindsey's murder were released.
The school will have grief counselors on hand.
Employees tell WPTV that faculty and staff will be meeting Monday morning before school starts to talk about how to handle the day.
Employees say they expect to discuss how to talk about what happened to Lindsey in an age appropriate way for students.
They also expect to talk about how to control talk of the topic throughout the school.
Employees say they hope parents will talk to their kids Sunday night about the tragedy, so that the news won't come as a shock to them if they hear more about it at school.
Officials with the Bak Middle School of the Arts Foundation posted a statement on Facebook in regards to the Kimberly Lindsey tragedy.
