Talking to Children about Violence

Dear Steele Families,

As a result of the recent tragedy in Florida, I know many of you have questions about school safety. I want to reassure you that student safety is our top priority. Here is a link to our Standard Response Protocol, which explains the safety drills we practice so that we are prepared should an emergency occur at school.

These are additional resources you may find helpful when talking with your child about tragedies that occur at school.

Our DPS Safety and Security department will be hosting regional parent meetings in the coming weeks. As soon as a location and date is established for our region, we will share this information with you.

Thank you for always respecting and abiding by the safety procedures we have in place at school.

Sincerely,

Cindy
