This morning, our thoughts are with the families in Oklahoma impacted by the devastating weather yesterday. It is awful to again have to process the loss of children in schools.
I want to assure our community that we take all weather warnings seriously. We also take our tornado drills seriously. Our drills, specifically the safe areas within each school, are reviewed by the fire departments from our municipalities.
The news of the loss of life and destruction to properties in Oklahoma will have an impact on our students. Administrators and teachers will take great care to be sure that discussions about this are age-appropriate. If you believe that your student needs specific attention from our staff, do not hesitate to contact your principal and/or teachers. A caution, with a tragedy like this, is to ensure that our youngest children are not over-exposed to the news coverage on this story.
Our thoughts are with the Plaza Towers and Briarwood Elementary School communities, the people of Moore and Newcastle, Oklahoma, and the surrounding communities. Our attention will be on your children to ensure their safety.
