All threats to our school or students are taken very seriously and are investigated thoroughly. We wanted you to have the facts so you can discuss them with your child and emphasize the seriousness of this issue. If you discover anything that can assist in the investigation, please contact us immediately. The safety of our students is a major priority and we are committed to providing a secure campus. I would like to commend our staff, teachers, parents and students for their prompt response and cooperation during today’s incident.

TRIPOD STUDENT SURVEY

Letter was sent home on Thursday, October 18 with information regarding the 2018-2019 Tripod Student Perception Survey, a confidential survey that provides the school and teachers with student feedback to improve classroom practices and the learning environment. This survey is voluntary, however, your child's views are important to ensure a quality educational system. We ask for your assistance in encouraging your child to participate and respond honestly to the survey questions. To request that your child be exempted from the survey, please complete the Tripod Student Perception Survey Declination form that was attached to the letter. A copy of that form can be found by clicking on this link. If you choose to not have your child participate in the survey, fill out this form and return it to Mr. Perez by Friday, October 26.
