Dear PUSD Families,
We are greatly saddened by today’s news of the tragic shooting at a high school in Washington State. Our sympathies are with the families and the community.
Resources for discussing tragedies such as this with your children can be found on the Poway Unified School District website at PUSD School Safety Help. We also want to remind you our schools have counseling staff members available if your student would like additional support.
School safety is our number one priority. All Poway Unified schools have detailed plans to respond to the various types of emergencies they may face. As a part of these plans, every school conducts emergency drills throughout the school year to ensure that students and staff alike know how to respond to a specific emergency. We also have strong partnerships and work closely with local law enforcement and emergency responders.
Thank you for all you do to ensure our students and staff members have a safe and fulfilling educational experience. I know you join me today in sending our support to the Marysville-Pilchuck High School community during this extremely difficult time.
John P. Collins, Ed.D.
