Good evening! I understand concerns, probably more than anyone when it comes to student safety, considering I am responsible for more than 7,000 students in the Walker County School System. This number includes my own two children. Today’s event was a generic threat, and NOT specific to any one location. Based on the information we had we took the necessary measures outlined in our safety plan. This event called for SECURE PERIMETER and HEIGHTENED AWARENESS.
It is not our practice to do a “callout” to parents, or post on social media, during these type of events. This creates chaos and confusion and most often will interfere with our most important task, which is protecting our children. Please know we always communicate with you at the appropriate time when these events occur. Each school has a safety plan that is well thought out, communicated among staff, and practiced. We work directly with law enforcement and community agencies when these events arise.
Thank you and God Bless!
