Letter From the Superintendent Regarding the School Shooting in Texas on May 18, 2018

May 18, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff,

 Once again, we find ourselves stunned by yet another school shooting; this one at Santa Fe High School in Texas.  In light of this tragic news and the even more tragic realization that our country has experienced 22 school and soft-target shootings since January 1st of this year, it is not surprising that our thoughts are with those who have lost loved ones and those who have been injured  in this latest attack.

 With every such devastating event, we are reminded that the safety/security of our students is our top priority.  In that commitment, I once again want to assure our community that we take safety and security seriously and work daily to practice our schools’ safety procedures.  And, as with each tragic event we have experienced in the past, I hope the resources available on www.westbrookctschools.org will help you and your students to cope with this most recent tragedy.   Please feel free to share the approved resource information with other families and friends as well.  Our school support professionals and I hope that these resources will be helpful to you.

 As always, please contact me via email at pciccone@westbrookctschools.org or phone at 860-399-6432 with any questions or concerns regarding school violence issues and talking with children about it.

 

Immigration Resources: Connecticut Family Preparedness Plan

 For your convenience, the State of CT has developed a resource toolkit for individuals and families with immigration concerns.  Please read CT's description of the resource tools and go directly to the state website by clicking on the Plan version of your choice or the hyperlink below.

"To assist families who have concerns about immigration enforcement, particularly in regards to to the possibility of the deportation or detainment of guardians and the impact that it could have on their children, the State of Connecticut has developed a useful toolkit that people can utilize.  There is no cost to utilize any of the documents contained in the toolkit, and neither attorneys nor court action are needed.  If you are worried about what will happen to your children if you are detained or deported, you should make a family preparedness plan.  We hope that you never have to use your plan, but having one may help reduce the stress of the unexpected."
