Dear Families

The news  has reported that Hamas has issued a call for a global Day of Rage  tomorrow.  The safety of our children and staff is paramount to our community. Every day on our campus there are seven security specialists  under the supervision of our Director of Safety and Security  Mr. Joe Rios,  two school resource officers, and one mile of safety officer. With the support of Weston Police Chief Edwin Henion, Director Rios and Weston Police Captain Matt  Brodacki have collaborated to increase the number of police officers on campus tomorrow  . We have a solid team and strong partnership with the Weston Police, and I am proud of our shared unwavering commitment to the safety of our community.  We will continue to take the  necessary precautionary measures to ensure the security of our campus. During this time of troubling unrest, our thoughts and prayers are with all of our families. Please know that we are here to support Weston's children. Each school has a mental health team of professionals that are ready to help.
