On behalf of all of our schools, I want to express our sincere condolences to the friends and families impacted by the tragic school shooting in Florida. The impact on the greater school community of the south Florida High School is devastating. It is reassuring to hear the high level of services being offered by the school district and local agencies to support the families and students.
At home, here in Eureka City Schools, we do many things to prepare for a day we all hope never comes. Tonight, our Board of Trustees will be approving the safety plans for all of our schools, which is an annual event for us. Part of these plans are regularly scheduled lockdown and emergency response drills in our schools. Today, Eureka High School was scheduled to participate in a lockdown drill, but we have postponed the drill to a later date out of respect for those impacted by this tragedy.
