In light of the tragic events that occurred in Florida this past week I want you to know that we take the safety of our students very seriously. We have practiced lock down and fire drills that were planned. The week after vacation I will be having an unannounced lock down drill. I do not want to scare your children but I want them to know that we are prepared to protect them in the event of an emergency. We live in a crazy world but school should always be a safe environment for children.
The following resources were sent out by the Archdiocese of Boston that can be helpful in dealing with these tragedies as a family.
Resources after a tragic event
Wednesday we celebrated Ash Wednesday with a prayer service and the distribution of ashes. It was a wonderful way to begin our Lenten journey. The following are the words of Pope Francis that I shared with the students.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful children with us. I hope that you all have a safe and restful vacation filled with lots of family time.
Mrs. Julie Marotta
