Dear Parents, Employees and Community Members,

Our thoughts are with the families impacted by the tragic loss of life in Connecticut. This tragedy is difficult for anyone, especially children, to comprehend.

A resource you may find useful is "Talking to Children About Violence:  Tips for Parents and Teachers" From the National Association of School Psychologist. Please be open to listening to your children talk about their feelings and reaction to this incident.

I, like you, am deeply disturbed by the events in Connecticut. When an incident this significant occurs, it makes us take time to reassess our own protocols and security measures. Therefore, we will be reviewing our security, security procedures and preventative measures.


Brian White

Wondering what CV plans to do to make the kids safer? Armed guards, buzz in security? Any word?

Trying to reach out to CV officials, but have not been able to talk to them yet today. They did participate in this "active shooter" drill with area police departments at the high school earlier this year... http://chartiersvalley.patch.com/articles/police-trained-in-january-to-stop-active-shooter-at-chartiers-valley-high-school

That's great news, but I am more concerned about preventing a shooting access and protection before law enforcment gets there...which is often too late. Thanks Mike
