LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Little Falls and Pillager schools made counselors available Monday for students and staff trying to cope with the shooting deaths of two cousins.

Classes in the Little Falls school district don’t resume until Tuesday, so Superintendent Stephen Jones says only a few people met with counselors Monday. But he says he expects a “vastly different situation” Tuesday when students return.

Haile Kifer was a senior at Little Falls High School. Jones says he hopes students take advantage of the counseling services Tuesday because it means the kids will be ready to get their feelings out.

Classes were back in session Monday at Pillager High School, where Nicholas Schaeffel was a student. Superintendent Chuck Arns says a few students sought help from school counselors and local clergy members there Monday morning.
