Thank you to everyone who attended our Jan. 23 safety and security public information session to share views on the vitally important topic of school safety and to hear how we are addressing the recent tragic events. We listened closely to all the comments and concerns expressed and assure you that the valuable input gathered at the meeting will guide us as we continue to adopt measures that hold the safety of our students as our top priority.
We announced new measures and initiatives at Tuesday’s meeting. Combined with steps already taken, we are confident they will help ensure that New Rochelle High School, and all district schools, are safe, nurturing places for students to learn and thrive.
These steps include:
The following additional measures have been put in place to support the safety of high school students and staff, and will remain in effect until further notice:
I had initially ordered the searches of students selected randomly by computer but these were ended on Tuesday. This interim step was taken during a time of heightened security.
Thank you in advance for your support in making these measures successful. Your continued input is welcome and encouraged. Please email them to: email@example.com.
Please be assured that City School District of New Rochelle Board of Education and Administration place the safety of your children as our highest and most critically important priority. We will continue to communicate our efforts to you on this through ongoing communication and public meetings.
Our thoughts remain with the families and their friends, students, staff and anyone in the district affected by the recent tragic incidents.
Together, we are #NewRoStrong.
