Letter from Superintendent Snyder

Dear Families:

     Because of the horrible events of February 14, when 17 children and adults were killed in Parkland Florida, today was designated nationally as a student protest day.  Students across the country intended to walk out of school at 10 to raise consciousness about gun violence in schools.  Knowing that, Mrs. Peteani met with the student council last week to get them involved with a way to approach this day that would be safer and a more meaningful way to express their feelings.  The student council decided that over the course of this day, students would read the names of the seventeen victims one at a time, accompanied by a moment of silence for each.  At 10, we did have five students walk out for seventeen minutes.  The police and village officials blocked off the street and Mrs. Peteani monitored them to make sure they were safe.  The students have behaved respectfully and I do believe the moments of silence have been a good way for the students to reflect.  I commend the student council for their proactive decisions.

     I also wanted to assure parents who may have heard that there was a threat of guns being brought to school today. We were alerted to this comment yesterday and we set about to determine if it was a credible threat.  It turns out that one youngster heard about the dayof protest against guns in school and misinterpreted it to mean that guns would be in school.  The threat was deemed not credible, and we were able to re-assure that student that her interpretation was mixed up.  I know these are extremely sensitive issues for all of us, parents and educators, but I also wanted to let you know that whenever there is a credible report, we will notify you.  The police are our good friends in this effort to keep the school safe and I am grateful to them for their responsiveness.

Dr. Teresa Thayer Snyder
