Handle With Care Massachusetts


The “Handle With Care” Model:

If a law enforcement officer encounters a child during a call, that child’s information is forwarded to the school before the school bell rings the next day. The school implements individual, class and whole school trauma-sensitive curricula so that traumatized children are “Handled With Care”.  If a child needs more intervention, an adjustment counselor may refer a mental health provider.
