Dear Parents/Guardians:

Last week Law Enforcement Officers assisted us in practicing a Lockdown drill. Yesterday, State Troopers presented to our staff on Emergency Response to an Active Shooter. After the presentation a teacher reported that a student was overheard making threatening comments. The New York State Troopers followed up on the allegations and determined there was no credible threat. As a precaution, this morning, the State Police were a presence in our building when students arrived to ensure the safety of all students and staff.

We are committed to providing a safe learning environment for our school community. We will continue to partner with Law Enforcement to practice emergency drills and address any future concerns that may arise.

We are more than just a number and the true values we all bring cannot be measured or evaluated. The clip below of Brene Brown reflects who we want to be as people and as a community of learners.
