Superintendent's Message to Parents/Guardians
Regarding School Tragedy in Connecticut

Dear Parents and Guardians,

What happened in Newtown, Connecticut is simply unspeakable. We are all deeply saddened by this tragic event. I ask that we keep close to our hearts the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary, their families, the children who witnessed this unbelievable violence, and the entire community of Newtown, Connecticut. 

Our School Board and all members of the administrative team view school safety as our first priority. Roanoke City Public Schools worked with Ken Trump, a national expert on school security, on the development of our District safety plan. You may have seen him on national TV this weekend. I want you to know we review our security procedures on a regular basis. Of course, because of this tragedy, we will scrutinize all procedures. 

Many students will have questions and concerns about this tragedy. School personnel will work with them to provide reassurance. Please let us know if we can support you in any way.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school principal or me at 853-2381.

Sincerely,
 
Rita D. Bishop, Ed.D.
Superintendent
