MILFORD, Pa. — Phyllis Petrillo, an agent at New York Life, Scranton office, spoke to teachers, administrators and staff at Delaware Valley School District’s Administration Building on Tuesday, Jan. 8, about NYL’s Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative.

The Grief-Sensitive Schools Initiative is a program by which New York Life’s agents and employees visit school districts to introduce their bereavement resources, specifically their new dedicated resource for schools – GrievingStudents.org
