Dear Parents and Guardians:
We all grapple with the horrific gun violence perpetrated in a Florida school this past week. Since the Sandy Hook elementary school mass murder in 2012, there have been 400 educators and/or students shot in 200 different school shootings. This is a staggering statistic and it beckons a response from educators, parents and students.
First, we will be in support of the students' rights to protest. In a democratic society, educators should empower, then support students' rights to peacefully assemble and vent grievances. As always, it is our job to educate, facilitate understanding, and inspire. I will discuss this with each Principal so that we can unite with students as part of any protest, rather than being apart from them.
Secondly, we are going to increase our school safety measures. The first line of defense is reporting, so all staff will emphasize this with students in the coming days. I ask you to emphasize this at home to make sure that students understand the importance of having them report suspicious behavior as well.
Thirdly, we are researching and will be enhancing security measures at each school in an effort to make our schools more safe. We are coordinating that research with the police and with our Board of Education. We are also reminding students and staff that a locked door is a good defense so make sure that students understand that they are not to let anyone in any door.
Lastly, please do not hesitate to comment or give suggestions on how we can better secure our schools or serve our communities. As a parent of a school aged child, I completely understand and share your concerns about the safety and well-being of your child(ren).
Dr. Brian Repici
