ALKI ELEMENTARY PREPAREDNESS: December 17, 2012
Dear Alki families, staff and community members,
As our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut, many parents have questions about the safety of their own students. Please know that your child’s safety is a priority for us at Alki Elementary School.
I would like to take this time to share with you some safety information for Alki Elementary School specifically, including parent responsibilities during an emergency, district and school protective actions and answers to general emergency preparedness questions that have come up in response to the violence that we have recently witnessed. Please review the attached documents for detailed information about emergency preparedness at Alki.
In addition, the Seattle Police Department is providing extra support to our schools and coordinating additional patrols in our school zones. In the coming weeks, Seattle Public Schools security staff will meet with each principal to talk about our school’s safety plans and any emergency needs.
While no act of violence is 100% preventable I would like to assure you that we, as do all schools across this country, take safety seriously, and have plans in place which are updated and reviewed annually to keep our students and staff safe, and to handle any critical incidents that we all hope will never take place.
If you have specific recommendations to improve the safety in our school, please work with our School Safety Committee and PTA to develop a list of recommendations.
In the meantime, please know that our teachers will continue to create a sense of normalcy for our students while acknowledging the tragedy in developmentally appropriate ways.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Please click here to review the document for detailing information about emergency preparedness at Alki.
Chanda E. Oatis, Principal
Alki Elementary School
