Dear Parents/Guardians,

On March 6, 2018, I met with the class president of each high school class and the president of the high school student council, to discuss their goals for March 14th. Their primary goal was to show support for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and to express their belief that something needs to be done to prevent school shootings. The District understands students wishing to voice their views about school violence and are working with them so that their expression of their views is done in a manner that is safe, responsible, and minimally disruptive to the learning process.

School administration has organized an assembly in conjunction with the Williams Bay Police Department. As indicated in the letter on March 5th, the district is planning a lock-down drill with students. The assembly will take place after the drill. The focus of the school assembly will be how can our students help insure we have a safe and secure learning environment at Williams Bay Middle/High School. Williams Bay Police Chief Chris Severt will share with students things they can do to help lessen the possibility of school violence. He will also share information about the P3 Tips program, which allows students to anonymously report drugs, weapons, bullying, theft or other criminal offenses directly to law enforcement. He will also take time to answer students’ questions about what they should do in the event of an intruder at school. There will be a separate assembly for middle school students so that Police Chief Severt can share a similar message with those students.

If students walk out, school administration and law enforcement will be present to make sure it is orderly and non-disruptive to normal school operations. Students have expressed their intent to walk-out and school administration has met with student leaders to provide some guidelines regarding what is and is not acceptable. The students have shared that they planning a moment of silence for the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and that they are working together to prepare a brief statement expressing their desire for the end to school violence.

Again, we encourage you to have conversations at home as well regarding safety at school and other locations. As a community, it is imperative that we work together to ensure the well-being and safety of everyone. We greatly appreciate our students understanding and respecting this.

Thank you for your support and please feel free to reach out to me should you have thoughts or questions you would like to share.

Sincerely,

Dr. William White

Middle and High School Principal
