There is nothing quite like at the end of a long day coming home to hug my three kiddos. Following the horrific unfolding of the February 14 fatal high school shooting in Florida – those hugs were a bit tighter at my house, as I’m sure they were in yours. We love our children – all of them, and we want nothing but the best for them, and at the Loveland City School District – that starts with safety.
Today, all of our buildings reviewed safety procedures.
Today, all of our buildings emailed parents to let them know who to call with questions.
Today, the Loveland Police Department provided increased presence at our buildings.
But, I’m sure in your mind you ask: What about tomorrow? And, the day after that… and the day after that.
What I will tell you is that Tiger Safety is always on our minds as administrators, teachers, staff – and with the full support of our Loveland Board of Education. It is always evolving, always improving, and often reviewed by our District Safety Committee. We have pulled together a comprehensive resource
for our Tiger families to dive a little deeper into how we are trained and the resources we have to keep our district safe.
It’s what we can articulate to you on a day where many of us find ourselves at a loss for words.
And, as always, we encourage you to speak up if you see something. Tell a teacher, tell a principal – call me. Let someone know if something seems wrong.
Our collective Loveland heart is with our Florida neighbors.
In service to our Tigers,
Dr. Amy Crouse
Loveland City School District
