On behalf of the staff of Mount Airy City Schools, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the community of Newtown Conn. It is an unspeakable tragedy and our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with the families in the days and weeks ahead.
I want to reassure the community that safety is paramount to MACS. Our number one priority is to provide a safe and secure environment for our students and staff. As a result, our school and district administration as well as school staff have worked hard to create safe campuses. We consistently review our procedures, protocols, and plans in our efforts to demonstrate our commitment to safety.
As a father of two girls, I can understand any feelings of trepidation caused by this tragedy. I am thankful for the dedicated staff that love and cherish our children each and every day. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to give me a call.
