Dear Siler City Elementary School Families,
We were all deeply saddened by the events related to the school shooting in Florida this week. I wanted to share with you all steps we take as a school to prepare for emergency situations and steps we need you all in the community to take as well. As a school, please know we have plans in place to deal with emergencies and we practice ‘lockdowns’ several times each school year. More information related to lockdowns can be found here: Lockdown FAQ Available on District Website. Other steps we take include:
Our school has developed and maintains a unique, confidential, state-mandated crisis plan and practice these plans.
We maintain technology-based security devices including cameras and door access systems.
It is also critical that we as adults, and our students, are all always vigilant not only in our school, but also in our wider community. If you see something concerning, please report this to our school, or to the proper law enforcement authorities. As always, the safety of our students and staff is number one.
Thursday was our 100th day of school. Our teachers are working their hearts out to ensure that each and every child at our school grows academically and socially-emotionally. For us to succeed as a community, however, we need your support at home too. Please make sure your child is at school on time each day ready to learn, unless they are truly sick. Also, ensure your child is reading each evening and completing their homework. It is also important for you to talk to your child each day about what they are learning. Finally, do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher with any concerns or questions.
Relatedly, we are having too many students either arriving to school late, or checking out too early. It is so important that your kids are here every moment possible. Please do all you can to schedule appointments for your kids after school hours. Show your kids how much you value their school attendance. We give out a ‘perfect attendance’ school award each quarter and students who miss a day, arrive late, or check out early are not eligible. Please help your child win the award for 3rd quarter.
We want to remind you all that SCE we will be holding a Multicultural Night on February 23 here at SCE from 5:00 to 7:00. We will have food, a dance group, and games from cultures all over the world, including right here in North Carolina. Come out and be a part of the fun.
Finally, please remember that Monday, February 19, is a teacher workday. We look forward to seeing your students on Tuesday, February 20th.
Dr. Larry Savage
