Once again, a terrible tragedy has occurred in our country. The senseless murder of dozens of people and serious injury to hundreds more in Las Vegas is just unfathomable.
We grieve for those who have lost their lives as well as the countless others whose lives will never again be the same. The sounds and images of last night’s horrific scene will no doubt dominate the network news and internet throughout the coming days and weeks. It is a time to hold our loved ones closer as we try to make sense of something that is simply beyond our comprehension.

At the school, we will do what we always do: provide our students with reassurance and support, take all possible steps to insure the safety of everyone in the community, and prepare for emergency situations. The following links will connect you to some helpful resources:
As I have said and written on so many occasions, what makes Gill St. Bernard’s such a special place is that it is a unique and supportive community. In times such as these, we always lean on each other for help and guidance. Together, we will work our way through this most recent tragedy, and find a path forward.
Gill St. Bernard’s is a private, coeducational day school for students age three through grade 12, located in suburban New Jersey. Each of the three school divisions provides a vigorous, meaningful and age-appropriate curriculum, and all students benefit from the environmental learning opportunities that exist on our 208-acre campus.
