Yesterday there was an act of senseless and tragic violence at a High School in Parkland, Florida that reminds us all of the importance of safety and security in schools.
We want to assure our families that our school has an updated school safety plan that has been developed in collaboration with law enforcement and state school safety officials. We continually learn and evaluate best practices to strengthen our safety plans.
Loogootee Community Schools' staff have been trained on the specifics of this plan, and we conduct periodic drills to ensure that everyone knows their role during a crisis. LCSC has specific protocol for entry to our schools, and we appreciate the understanding of our parents as we enforce these protocols for the safety of our children.
We appreciate your support as we work together as a community to maintain a safe environment. The safety of our students and staff remains our highest priority.
