Our deepest condolences are with those affected by the senseless and horrific event that occurred in Parkland, Florida. In light of this tragedy, we’d like to remind our school community that the safety and security of our students and staff will continue to be our top priority.

As always, all school buildings will remain locked at all times. All visitors must be granted building access by staff and must sign in at the main office. In addition to the monthly safety meetings and various drills practiced throughout the year, we are continuously reviewing and updating our safety policies and procedures as we receive information from law enforcement.

As a community, we must work together and look out for one another. We ask that you please reach out to us or to police if you observe suspicious or unusual behaviors that could potentially pose a risk to our students. This may occur on social networking sites or even by word of mouth. Administrators, teachers, counselors and school resource officers are available to assist you.

We remain confident in our ability to provide safe and nurturing learning environments for your children and we thank you for entrusting us with this most important task.

The clip below is from an interview WNYT-Channel 13 conducted with Superintendent John Carmello on February 15. Additional details about the drill he mentions will be available as we approach the date.
