An Open Letter to all Aledo ISD Families

December 20, 2012 by Randy Keck

Dear Parents and Community Members:

The tragic events of last week in Newtown, Conn., have shocked and saddened all Americans, understandably causing deep concern and reflection about school safety.

As parents and educators in this community, we share the responsibility for the safety and well-being of our precious children. I hope this letter serves to inform you about safety in our schools, as well as how you can help us all work together to create the best environment possible. Our first priority will always be the security of our students.

Aledo ISD follows a host of safety procedures; it is a never-ending vigil for us. Even before the events of last week, the district had started the process of updating our emergency procedures and preparedness. We employ four fulltime police officers who are deployed throughout the district at all times. We have multiple staff members who have received training in emergency preparedness. We have more than 300 surveillance cameras across the district covering every facility. We utilize security audits at every campus throughout the year. We thoroughly investigate tips we receive that may affect safety at school.

It takes all of us working together to make our schools safe. I am asking for your help in our quest to make our schools as safe as possible. Here are some ways we can work together:

· Remind your children to let adults know of anything they may hear at school that may affect the safety of others.
