Tomorrow, Friday, April 20th, is both the anniversary of the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and a day when some young people make poor decisions regarding marijuana use. For these reasons, we ask that you have a conversation this evening with your children about their feelings regarding safety at school, and the specific details of where they will be and who they will be with both before and after school tomorrow, so that they make positive decisions and choices.
We encourage all students to “see something, say something” to a DVD staff member if they are aware of anything happening that could be harmful to DVD student safety and/or our school community.
