5.31.22 School Safety Announcement
The recent tragic events in Uvalde, Texas are a stark reminder of the need for safety in our schools. White County Schools will use the lessons learned from Robb Elementary School to help improve the safety of our own students and staff. This summer, school leaders will tour their campuses along with law enforcement officers as part of a School Security Assessment sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. This detailed assessment will come with recommendations to improve each school's safety. Some of the improvements may be physical in nature while others may be procedural. Every reasonable effort will be made to implement these changes in order to make our schools more secure and safe. We may not disclose all of these measures for security reasons, but you can be assured that White County Schools is being proactive in our approach to school safety. Our prayers remain with the families in Uvalde, but our focus will be on the safety of our local school community. Thank you for your continued support of our school district and I wish you a safe and happy summer break.
Director of Schools
