Casey was a middle school special education teacher in Manhattan Beach, California, the school district said. This morning, at our weekly all-school assembly, we honored and remembered Sandy and all the victims of the mass shooting with a moment of silence.
The mass shooting, which began as singer Jason Aldean was performing at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival on the Las Vegas Strip, is being called the worst in United States history. We have been in contact with MBMS Principal Kim Linz, who was in attendance.
JENNY PARKS, a kindergarten teacher from California, and her husband, Bobby, were visiting her two brothers in Las Vegas. Debbie Dreiling; school psychologists Ms. Marjorie Questin and Ms. Emily Allen; MCHS and Meadows instructional assistant Mr. Chris Willemse; and Pennekamp Principal Dr. Karina Gerger; who were there as well. She was a 2000 graduate of Burr and Burton Academy in Manchester and received bachelor's and master's degrees in special education from the College of St. Joseph in Rutland. We wanted to let you know so that you can be prepared to support your children and to help them process this information.
Counselors were sent to the middle school campus to provide support for students, teachers and parents. Teachers will monitor and work with students to ensure they are connected with those resources as needed. She worked for the department for 10 years.
Willemse tried to stem the blood loss by putting a finger in the bullet hole, then gathered Casey in his arms and made a run for it as the barrage of bullets continued from above.
The employee who was killed was identified as Rachael Parker, a police records technician. Here are some of the people who lost their lives.

The resolution asks for countries not to use the death penalty in a "discriminatory manner" for LGBT people, those with intellectual disabilities, people under 18 and pregnant women.
The Washington Post reported that when Casey stopped responding, Willemse said "I love you" and told her that she was "amazing". "She was bubbly. She was enthusiastic".

"There were six rottweilers that somebody left in a backyard and she found out that they were at the shelter", Richardson said. "She adopted Maddie and so we went and we looked at all of them that were there and her heart was just breaking, she was like 'Oh my gosh, I wish I could take all of them, ' but Maddie just seemed like the best fit". "Reality has not set in", said Capt. Tim Hageman of the Manhattan Beach Police Department. I think for many of us, it has just not hit home.
One off-duty Orange County Sheriff's Department Deputy and two family members of other Sheriff Department's employees were injured in the attack, according to a press release from the Department.
At least 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured when police said a gunman, Stephen Craig Paddock, opened fire Sunday night from the 32nd floor of a hotel room overlooking the concert venue, according to the Associated Press.
