Dear Ware Learning Community:

As we continue to process images on the news and on social media of the horrific tragedy at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, we can’t help but think of our own daily lives here at Ware Junior Senior High School as students, faculty and staff. As we learn more about the lives lost, we recognize that we have a fundamental obligation to ensure that this type of tragedy never occurs here, in our own learning community.

Regardless of the many security measures that we currently employ, from locked interior and exterior doors, to security cameras and lockdown drills, there is nothing more important than human instinct and intuition. If you see or hear something, say something. If you feel something, say something. As we know, there are many ways in which we can share our thoughts and feelings, including on social media. An increased level of vigilance in all of these arenas is critical. Above all else, the most important thing that we can all do is remain cognizant of the all-too-common warning signs.

In addition, with regard to language and actions in the aftermath of such an incident, please understand that the level of scrutiny and sensitivity is incredibly high. Choose your words carefully; nothing of this nature will be taken lightly.

As we continue to send our thoughts to the families of loved ones affected in Parkland, Florida, please know that we will continue to work to safeguard our own school while developing the skills necessary to cope with tragedy of this magnitude.

In the time that remains during this morning’s extended homeroom, teachers will review lockdown protocol, and also discuss the resources available to you as you continue to process the week’s events.

Please honor the memory of those who were lost this week by engaging in a thoughtful, solemn dialogue at this time, and when it finally arrives, I wish you all an enjoyable, and safe winter break.

Mr. Elwell
