All teachers were prepared by the authorities of the Ministry of Education (Ministerio de Educacion Publica – MEP) in psychological first aid, so they can help their students overcome the trauma of Sebastian’s death.

Several mothers who did not give their name to the press could be seen crying  after dropping off their children.

One who did speak to La Nacion, who gave her name as Hazel, said it was with great pain of not knowing how her son will be at school because she is horrified by bullying, however, she trusts that the teachers will manage to change the environment to something very positive.

On February 28, 2018, 12-year-old Sebastián Díaz González threw himself in front of the train that runs near the school in a challenge or alleged bullying of other students.
