Due to continued incidences in our schools in which anonymous messages have been sent to our students with threatening language against our schools, I want to take a moment to provide additional insight into our process for addressing these situations and communicating our efforts with our families.
Our top priority as a district has been and will continue to be ensuring the safety of our students and staff. Everything else we do as an organization is secondary because high levels of learning cannot take place in an educational environment that is perceived to be unsafe. I find it equally important for our community to understand that no school is exempt from the conditions impacting our world today. Therefore, our students routinely practice a variety of safety drills from traditional tornado, earthquake, and fire drills to more recently needed intruder drills.
