Violence Awareness Week

This week, all New Jersey public schools will organize events around the theme of “Violence Awareness Week.” The Woodbury Public Schools will dedicate extra energy to provide our students more information about issues of safety appropriate to their grade level. Additionally, some individual classroom activities will focus on this theme.

I wrote a letter to parents and guardians informing them of the Violence Awareness Week and letting them know that we entered the 2006-07 school year with a plan to be more proactive with the practice of our various emergency response procedures associated with the district Emergency Operations Plan. Our plan has been assembled utilizing the support of various professional resources and covers a wide variety of potential crisis situations. This letter was sent home with students in grades K-6 and posted on our district website's front page.

Please see the full text of the letter for more detail. You can feel free to contact the building principals or me with any questions that you may have.

I am glad this is going to be go over, as my child is aware and it is better to be prepared, than never. I hope they practice it, every year, as much as they do with fire drills. Thanks for coming up with this, finally, with what the past news, around our area, better safe than chaos. Thank you, Parent of a Child of Evergreen Ave. School.
