By now many of you have heard about the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas. We are writing to you this evening to let you know that we recognize that our students, staff, and parents may be apprehensive about coming to school following this event.
Please know we will be sure to have a larger adult presence at pickup and dropoff. Additionally, we have spoken to the local police departments, and students and parents may also notice that local police officers are more present than they usually are.
It is important to note that we have had no indication or threat of violence toward our students, staff, or schools. Safety of our students and staff is always our number one priority, and we will continue to work together to provide a safe and secure environment for our students and staff.
Should you feel that your student needs additional support, please contact your student’s principal to discuss ways that we can best provide assistance. The following resource may also be helpful: Talking to Children About Violence: Tips for Parents and Teachers.
Thank you for your continued support, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions.

Superintendent of Schools
