Hawaii public school administrators reviewed school security procedures with Honolulu police after 26 people died in a mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. 

The state Department of Education says its safety, security and emergency preparedness officials met with Honolulu police this morning. 

Schools Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi says all of Hawaii’s public schools have emergency procedures in place. She says the department’s teams revisited these procedures with heightened awareness. 

Matayoshi says counseling services are available for students, parents and teachers who may need them. 

Schools begin winter break this weekend. The department says parents and students should contact their school or the department if they need counseling during the break.
