North Bellmore Schools Superintendent Arnold Goldstein said that the district will do all that it can for the children who lost their parents in Tuesday's murder-suicide.
"We will do whatever we can to support the children," Goldstein said. "We will be there to provide counseling and whatever they need, because it will be very difficult for them."
Goldstein said that three of the children are students in the North Bellmore School District and the oldest child is in middle school.
On Wednesday, social workers and psychologists visited every classroom in the district.
"There were some students who were very upset and we met with them individually," Goldstein said. "We also sent materials out to the parents to help them help their kids deal with their grief and confusion."
Goldstein said that the district is encouraging students to reach out to the children and that the students started writing letters to express their condolences.
"It's a horrible tragedy and my heart goes out to those kids," he said. "It affects the whole community, the children that lost their parents and the children who are trying to make sense of this."
