BROWNWOOD, Texas -

Brownwood ISD Superintendent and Early Elementary School Principal said counseling is available.

Brownwood ISD Superintendent Reece Blincoe said counselors are ready to speak in all of the schools to any student who needs to talk.

Blincoe said they did not bring in additional counselors.

At Early Elementary School Principal Aletha Patterson said there are a few options the students have if they need counsel.

"I do think that it would be necessary to have an assembly, you know, and we have a great set of counselors that we work with in our county that would be able to come in and help us work through a grief process with the students," said Patterson.

Both Brownwood and Early ISD can provide counseling to any student. Brownwood ISD's phone number is 325-643-5644, and Early Elementary School's phone number is 325-646-5511.
