Dr. Parnia Addresses Shootings in Newtown, Connecticut

I speak on behalf of all of us at Pacific Oaks when I say we were deeply saddened by the news of the shooting that took place earlier today at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. Our hearts go out to the children, families, teachers and administrators involved in the catastrophic event. As an educator I find it disturbing that these types of situations are happening more frequently in schools across the nation.

As we move through these challenging times, please be assured that we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our students at both the College and Children’s School. Please join me in extending our condolences to the parents and all those who lost loved ones in this tragic event. Our prayers are with them.
