Important Safety Message from Superintendent Pace

Important Safety Message BannerSince last week's terrible tragedy in Broward County, the school district and the community have fielded numerous calls, emails, and social media posts expressing concern over safety and security in our schools. Every threat is taken seriously by both the school district and local law enforcement, and you may have observed additional law enforcement presence at your school. We continue to encourage and expect our students and our community members to say something if they see or hear a specific threat. Unfortunately, we have also been following up on false and misleading social media posts, with non-specific threats of shooters or terrorists and warnings for students to stay home from school. This is disruptive, costly, and distracting, and both the district and law enforcement will respond appropriately when those making false threats are identified. The school district has detailed comprehensive safety and emergency plans for every site that are not shared with the public to prevent those with ill intent from using information against us. In addition, the School Board will have a closed meeting next week with local law enforcement agencies and elected officials to review these plans in light of recent events. Please recognize that if an investigation indicates something threatens one of our schools, you will hear directly from us. Thank you for your continued trust and support; by working together, we can and will ensure our schools are safe places to learn and work.
