Public Meeting on School Security.
As I discussed in an earlier post on the blog, the openness of our San Carlos schools campuses is a mixed blessing, since the aesthetics and convenience are somewhat offset by the inherent security risk. Apparently others feel the same way, because the school district has gotten inquiries about what they’re doing to enhance security in the wake of the Newtown school tragedy.
If you have concerns about the safety of the various San Carlos schools , then you should be aware of the meeting that’s being hosted by the San Carlos School District and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department to address this very topic. This community forum will be held on Monday, February 11th at the San Carlos Library.
Here’s the email that was sent out to the San Carlos community from the school superintendent today:
Dear Staff, Parents and Community Members,
Some of you have called or emailed the school district recently with concerns regarding the safety of adults and students in our school buildings in light of the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut. The district administrative team has been revising and updating the current emergency plan and security protocols for each of our schools. We appreciate and welcome your comments, concerns, and input. The San Carlos School District, San Mateo Sheriff’s Department, and the San Carlos Youth Center will host a Community Safety Forum on Monday, February 11, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at San Carlos Library Conference Room. The meeting will focus on school safety, violence prevention, traffic safety, internet/media education, current prevention, training and activation strategies within the District and Community. There will be an opportunity for the public to speak about safety with our school administrators, counselors, recreation leaders, and Police Chief Greg Rothaus. If you would like to know more about safety and security in San Carlos, please plan to attend this event.
Thank you for your continued support of San Carlos School District and our community.
Craig Baker, Ed. D.Superintendent
