Safety and Security in our Schools
It has been over a week since the tragic events in Highland Park, and our hearts are with the community and all those impacted by this senseless violence. Many of our District 35 families and staff were present at the parade that day, and we offer support to them (and to anyone) to process the grief and trauma resulting from that day. The Village and District can provide resources to any person or family who is struggling with the aftermath of this tragedy. Please reach out if you or a loved one needs help.
We recognize safety and security are top of mind for District 35 families as a result of the Highland Park tragedy, as well as similar events across our nation. Consistently over the past decade, the District, in partnership with the Village and Glencoe Public Safety, has taken many proactive steps to address safety and security in our schools. District 35 has an unwavering commitment to ensuring our schools remain safe spaces for learning and teaching. Click here to read the full letter to our families sent July 15, 2022.
