Our hearts go out to the families and staff involved in yesterday’s tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Florida. We hope and pray that nothing like that ever happens in our schools or community. However, if it does, we are prepared.
We take safety very seriously, and practice our emergency response plans frequently. Our training in the Incident Command System (ICS) is one way in which do our best to protect students and ourselves. Fire and law enforcement officials are trained and prepared to assist our school should an emergency occur. Schools are their number one priority.
We also partner with community health services to help our students and families who need support with social-emotional and other non-instructional issues.
A tragedy such as this reminds us to hug our loved ones a little tighter and appreciate each day a little more. Be well.
- Superintendent/Principal Janet Stemler -
