This summer one of our McCord staff members, Rita Martinez visited the Uvalde area with her family. This is a trip they take often but as she tells us below, this summer was different. While there, they placed a sign to show our support all the way from McCord Elementary and Vernon ISD. Read her words below about how this summer's trip was different than any others she has taken to that area in the past. "We recently traveled to South Texas to visit family. We traveled through Uvalde to pay our respects at Robb Elementary. It was a surreal experience for my family. We have relatives in the area and it was a tradition to visit Uvalde on our visits there. We always do a little shopping, ride through the park, eat at a local restaurant called the Townhouse, and make sure to visit the Panaderia (mexican bakery) before heading for home. When news of the tragedy spread in May, my thoughts were just shock and disbelief. I could not process how this could happen in such a quaint little town where we have such fond memories. The visit there was somber this time. We saw news cameras in and around the town. As we walked around the front of the Robb Elementary school grounds to grieve alongside others, we noticed even the news photographers were respectful of our space and observed from a distance. One took photos as my family and I worked to place flowers for those lost and to hang our McCord sign to represent our district. The flowers were blue, pink, and white for the children and teachers that were lost in the tragedy. A local, elderly gentleman handed us some tape to assist us with hanging our sign. It was a sweet gesture. It was a nice reminder that during our visits to Uvalde through the years we have only encountered friendliness and were welcomed everywhere we visited. As a counselor in training, that side of me wants so badly to find a way to help that community heal. As an educator, my heart goes out to our fellow educators there at Robb Elementary because in the education world we are all family. We are connected no matter the miles between us. Keep praying for Uvalde as they meet the challenges to make a plan to pick up the pieces and find strength to rebuild their community, their school system, and find ways to help those precious children heal from this trauma. " Thank you Mrs. Martinez for showing our support and sharing this experience with us!
🏫All Vernon ISD schools and offices will be closed on Monday, September 5.
