COMMUNITY CONVERSATION

Keeping Our Schools Safe

We will be holding a Community Conversation on school safety on November 11 at 6:00 pm in the UHS cafeteria.  In 2013, responding to the lessons learned from Sandy Hook, our community came together for our last Community Conversation on safety.  A 27 point plan was adopted and implemented.  Recent events (weapons found on campus) and the District's response to them, have generated a lot of conversation throughout the community.  Its time to come together again, to review where we are and what else needs to be addressed as we remain ever vigilant about the safety of our children.


RSVP to Kim Van der Mooren kvandermooren@ucfsd.net

Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
