Dear D-11 Families, 

By now you may have heard the terrible news out of Newtown, CT of the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school.  These types of horrific tragedies obviously hit home with us and I know I echo many in saying our hearts, thoughts, and deepest condolences are with the entire Newtown, CT community and school district.  

Please know that our top priority in District 11 is student and staff safety.  As you know, our schools are locked during school hours and everyone entering must check in at the main office of all D11 schools.  We have district security that routinely walk the grounds of all of our schools.  
 
If your student may be struggling with the news of the school shooting in Newtown, CT, please also know that we have crisis counseling services in District 11 so they may get counseling.  Please contact your school's main office for any questions about counseling services or security procedures.

Sincerely,
The District 11 Administration
