Greetings Woodland Park Families and Friends,
As we embark on our winter break I want to thank all of you for your continued support and efforts to make Woodland Park an outstanding school for your children to experience their middle school years. Without the help of the local community we would not be able to accomplish the high level of education that your children receive.
Over the past week I am sure that you have taken a moment to sit and discuss with your children the importance of safety and being prepared for emergency situations. As a parent of 2 children myself, I not only had deep conversations about the tragedy in Connecticut but also made sure I took the moments to discuss with them avenues that they have at school and in the community to remain safe. Some of you may be in the need of some resources to aide you in those types of discussions, or would like to review for yourself some emergency/crisis tips. Below are a few links that may aide you.
Please note that the staff at Woodland Park and the San Marcos School District are constantly revising emergency procedures and regularly participate in practice drills to ensure that we are prepared to react to an emergency on site. Our efforts also include the local Fire and Sherriff’s Department’s participation. Student safety is our number one concern. Over the next few weeks we will be working with law enforcement and the district to review our policies and procedures to ensure that we are doing the best we can to maintain a proper safe learning environment for your child. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our site.
Have a safe and happy winter break. We look forward to seeing you all in 2013.
