Dear Elmsford family,
As we watch the news reports and struggle to make sense of yesterday’s tragedy in Parkland, Florida, we are reminded of the importance of safety and security in our own schools. Please join me in keeping those families touched by this senseless school shooting in our thoughts and prayers.
Prior to the news of yesterday’s incident, I coincidentally discussed our emergency response with Mayor Williams, Commissioner Rescigno, and Chief Foster to develop a coordinated effort with our partners in the Elmsford Police Department. We took time to review the EUFSD Emergency Response Plan, as well as police department’s protocol for school related incidents. Following new information from yesterday’s calamity, we are able to make more informed decisions pertaining to the safety and security of our school community.
The safety and security of our school community is paramount! Please remember that our schools’ safety is ensured through the collaborative efforts of the entire school community. This requires coordination with our local police department, as well as involvement from all sectors of the school community. As usual, the Elmsford Police Department will be present in our schools and perform their routine patrols throughout the days and weeks to come.
Additionally, we continue to plan and conduct drills with emergency response agencies, as well the members of our school community to ensure a comprehensive, unified approach to school emergency response planning. Through this process, we are reminded that community engagement and partnerships are vital to building a safer school community.
We are a family in the EUFSD and it is important that we collaboratively ensure the safety and security of our school community. If you would like information about how to speak with your family about this incident, please visit the American Psychological Association link: Click here
Thank you for your continued partnership and commitment to the EUFSD school community.
Dr. Marc P. Baiocco
Superintendent of Schools
