Practice Lock-Down on Monday

Dear Parents,

We are so sorry to hear about the shooting in Connecticut...our hearts break for these families, friends, and loved ones involved in this tragic event.
We as a school recognize the importance of putting SAFETY first and foremost before all else. So, on Monday we will be doing a practice lock-down as well as spending time educating your students on the importance of safety in schools, silence during a lock-down, and a time of silence to recognize those that have gone through this horrific event.
Again, our hearts break and go out to each and every single person involved in this awful tragedy. Life is precious and we know, value, and recognize how important safety is, especially when it involves your student.
