  • Rumors, Safety, and Moving Forward

    This has been a very stressful week in our schools and community. The aftermath of the shootings in Florida along with the false rumors and fallacious threats spreading on social media, plus the horrific incident that occurred at Dalton High School on Wednesday, has created a stressful environment in which to teach and to learn. We hope this will let you know what steps we are taking to keep your children safe and secure in all of our schools.
