UVALDE, Texas — Emotions will be running high on Tuesday as students in Uvalde CISD return to the classroom following the May 24 mass shooting at Robb Elementary School that claimed the lives of 19 children and two teachers.
School districts across the state are encouraging students, staff, parents and community members to wear white and maroon Tuesday – the school district’s colors – in a show of solidarity with Uvalde.
Many of the districts are signaling solidarity with the hashtag #StandWithUvalde.
Among the districts participating is Fort Worth ISD.
“We want our friends and fellow educators in Uvalde to know we are thinking of them on this their first day of school,” said FWISD Interim Superintendent Karen Molinar. “And, that we will continue to support them throughout the 2022-23 school year.”
Pflugerville ISD in Central Texas is following suit.
Spectrum News 1 Texas will have extensive coverage of Uvalde CISD’s first day back beginning Tuesday morning.
