Good Afternoon! Thanks to all of our parents, students, staff, Lawrence Township Police and State Police for your patience and help over the last two days. A person has been identified as the person responsible for the threat. We are continuing to work with LTP to assist in the development of charges as appropriate. As a school we will be taking our steps to address the threat and disruption that this person created within our schools with the resources and steps we have available to us.
On a related note we do want to thank the parents who through calls to the school, e-mails, or social media postings let us know what we did well with and most importantly what we did not do well. While I hope we do not have to go through this process again, we have done after-action reviews, and have realized that we have a number of areas we can improve upon in our handling of our process. The information that parents have in advance, and the information we provide throughout and after an event, are critical to you and we will be making changes to address that. There are other steps as well within our security protocol that we wish to improve upon.
I, like you, have my greatest blessings in the form of my children in our schools. Everyday what we do matters from the classroom through to the safety of our children. We will do it better! Just hopefully our kids realize this is not how to take pride in what we do at Clearfield.
