All of our administrators are aware of the issue and we have been in contact with our local law enforcement partners. The police chiefs have assured us that officers are assigned to provide extra attention to our schools to ensure student and staff safety as they monitor the situation.

If you see anything suspicious, please contact the appropriate police department or call 911.

Thank you.
