Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this newsletter finds you well. As we embark on a new academic year at Walnut Creek & Winesburg Elementary Schools, I want to take a moment to emphasize our unwavering commitment to ensuring a safe and secure environment for all our students, staff, and visitors.

The safety of our students remains our top priority. We have implemented a comprehensive set of measures to create a nurturing atmosphere that fosters learning without compromise. Our dedicated staff members have undergone rigorous training to handle various emergency situations effectively. Regular drills, including fire drills, lockdown drills, and evacuation procedures, are conducted to ensure everyone is prepared and aware of the protocols.

In addition to our focus on emergency preparedness, we have upgraded our surveillance systems to enhance monitoring across the campus. Rest assured that these measures are designed to maintain a respectful balance between security, and maintaining the warm and welcoming atmosphere that defines our school.

We encourage open communication between parents, students, and staff. If you ever have concerns or suggestions regarding school safety, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Remember, safety is a shared responsibility, and your input is invaluable in our continuous efforts to improve.

Together, we can provide a safe and enriching environment where every child can thrive academically, emotionally, and socially. Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. Here's to a fantastic school year filled with growth and security.

Warm regards,

Darrell Haven

Walnut Creek & Winesburg Principal
