Safety in Our Schools: Message to parents and community
Precautions, safeguards in place following Connecticut tragedy
I expect that due to the media attention given to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, many of our students will come to school this Monday morning with questions. Our counseling staff and our classroom teachers will be ready - ALAN W. REED
By Alan Reed, Superintendent
Adair County School District
I feel that it is important to reach out to Adair County parents following the school tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. Parents need to know we have precautions and safeguards in place and that the safety of our children remains the top priority of Adair County Schools.
I will contact each of our principals over the weekend. Come Monday, Ms. Brenda Mann and I will meet with our district leadership team, including principals, to review our procedures dealing with intruders. We also plan to involve our school resource officer and will request extra patrols. It is also likely that we will increase the number of the regular drills we conduct in our schools, which include building-wide lock-downs.
I expect that due to the media attention given to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, many of our students will come to school this Monday morning with questions. Our counseling staff and our classroom teachers will be ready.
We don't want our schools to become prisons, but at the same time, horrific events like the one we have just witnessed in Connecticut cause all of us to be extra cautious and vigilant.
As a parent, I understand how precious the lives of our children are. I assure you that we will do everything in our power to keep each child safe, along with the dedicated teachers and staff who work in our schools.
If you have specific concerns please feel free to contact me, Ms. Brenda Mann, or the principal at your child's school. - Alan W. Reed
