Handle with Care Program


What is it? The Handle with Care program was first created in West Virginia. The main goal of the program is for police, sheriff, fire department, and schools to work together, in partnership, with youth that have experienced a traumatizing event. Often, children experience trauma between the time that they leave school and return the following day. This program gives officers the opportunity to advise school staff that a student was involved in a traumatizing event….and to handle them with care.

An example of a Handle with Care notification: An officer responds to a domestic violence incident in the evening, and note that there are children present, the responding officer will send an email notification to the school email Grafton public school counselors will receive the messages. The message will not contain any details regarding the incident triggering a response- it will simply say “Handle Susie Smith with care” This allows school staff to know that Susie may not have slept well, may not have completed assignments, may need a meal, or may demonstrate unusual or inappropriate behaviors. Staff can then respond appropriately.
