Message from the Superintendent

 

February 15, 2018

Dear MMMUSD-CESU School Community,

Our thoughts, hearts and prayers are with the students, families and staff of Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida as well as other communities that have been affected by acts of violence.  These recent tragic events are troubling, sad and very concerning.  It is important that we do everything we can to support students after these traumatic events and affirm our District’s resolve to offer rich, nurturing and safe educational environments to our children.  In addition, it is critical that I communicate to you that nothing is more important to our administrative team than the safety of both your children and our staff members.  Administrators devoted time, reflection and effort each month to effectively implement school-wide safety plans, respond to potential emergencies and discuss measures to stop possible threats before they occur.  School-based teams also focus on planning, response and prevention.  

Please know that MMMUSD-CESU faculty, staff and administrators are committed to supporting students and families as we try to process and reflect on the tragic events at Stoneman Douglas High School and other U.S. communities.  Below are links to resources that may help you in talking with your children:

  • National Child Traumatic Stress Network:

Tips for Parents and Caregivers on Media Coverage of Traumatic Events

  • Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration:

Tips for Talking with and Helping Children Cope After a Traumatic Event (from SAMHSA)

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school principal or me if have questions or need support.

Sincerely,

John R. Alberghini, Ed.D

MMMUSD-CESU Superintendent
