BGR-1 Families, As a follow-up to my communication yesterday, I find that a need for an additional update is needed in light of continued anxiety and rumors. To reiterate, there has been no threat uncovered of any sort or type of shooting and no list with any names on it and no date identified for anything like this to take place. What has been fabricated from a simple “hitting” type of communication between two students has been augmented and changed and passed around creating anxiety. We have gotten permission from the family to share this information (since we typically do not share information related to student discipline). But we need our families to help stop the spread of these rumors and refrain for posting them on social media. This continued focus causes anxiety in our students and staff and disrupts the educational process. People speculating at every little item they notice and turning these into something they are not is not helpful for any of us. Safety has and continues to be one of our district’s top priorities. Over the last five years, we have taken many important steps to help further safeguard our school community and ensure a safe learning environment for our students, staff, and visitors. Some of these improvements have been the addition of card readers and airphone/buzzing in system at school entrances, safety film added to exterior glass, a School Resource Officer, and two new guidance positions (and we are planning to add another counseling position for next year paid for by a grant we recently were awarded). We have also increased the availability of counseling services through partnering agencies. The BGR-1 Schools regularly participates in drill exercises and advanced training to ensure everyone is able to respond swiftly and appropriately if an incident occurs. Table-top simulations with local first responders, reunification plans, unified threat-response plans, and ALICE (Active Shooter Civilian Response) trained expert led training have been a very important part of our prevention plan. While we hope we will never need to deal with the worst imaginable situation, we train in hopes of minimizing or even preventing incidents. One of the common threads of recent national and state safety audit reports for schools points out that “A risk assessment can identify vulnerabilities and enable the development of a strategy to address any security gaps,” and that “effective security plans use a layered approach across all three areas of a school: entry points, the building envelope, and the classroom.” Both reports go on to emphasize the need for school resource officers, additional counseling resources, and training. Many have noticed new entrances we built with Prop S funding and buzzing in capability at every entrance. These entrances are monitored by staff to ensure only those who are supposed to be in the building enter. We have enclosed our courtyards, so students have places to experience them without exposure outside. Additionally, our classroom doors that were still hollow core type doors were replaced with intruder prevention approved solid doors and locking systems. These and other improvements mentioned before, and most importantly, training have been instrumental in our prevention. We do and have shared real threats when we unconsider them to be viable with our community. We do not, however, share every little discipline event where there might be a physical altercation event or suspision of one with our public. After hearing that this had grown into something unrecognizable from its orgin by Tuesday night, we had messages to our community the next morning. This update is another attempt to ask for help in squelching the misinformation. Being vigilant, while very important, is very different from expanding and sharing ideas that are not founded in truth. We teach students to think critically about every claim or counter claim, and we ask for your help to make sure this is an area of focus. Matthew L.

Tickets for the performances are available at https://www.stlouisballet.org/nutcracker. Saint Louis Ballet is the only professional, resident ballet company of metropolitan St. Louis.

As we head into December and winter approaches, we want to remind parents how they can stay informed when inclement weather affects school. The decision to delay the opening of school, dismiss early, or close school for the day due to weather conditions is never an easy one. Our priority is always the safety of the children. School closings, or early school dismissal, will be announced on the district website and sign as soon as the decision is made. In addition, we will send emails and autodial phone calls and text messages to BGR-1 families. Our community will also find accurate information about school closings on the following television stations: WGEM, KTVI (Ch.2), and KSDK (Ch. 5), both TV and online, on the Townsquare Media Quincy/Hannibal KHMO‐AM/KICK‐FM/KRRY‐FM/WLIQ‐AM and KJFM (Eagle 102) radio stations and websites, The Bowling Green Times and Peoples' Tribune online broadcasts, and on our District Facebook page. When we experience inclement weather conditions, safety is the most important consideration. Parents can help their students and the district prepare. Make plans ahead of time and communicate them with your children so they understand what to expect during an early school dismissal due to inclement weather. Understand that school closings are for the safety of children throughout the district. While the condition of your neighborhood streets may be fine, other areas of the district may be experiencing harsher weather. Please review the information you have listed as emergency contacts and make sure that the numbers are updated in our Student Information System by contacting your building office. Lastly, I am thankful we have not had any snow days within the first semester of this year so far. You may know that schools can attend remotely this year on days where schools are closed due to inclement weather and can count these for attendance and not be made up. This was new last year. We still plan to use the first five of our built-in snow days as regular nonattendance days if we have to close for inclement weather before using this remote option, otherwise known as AMI (alternative methods of instruction days). If we have more than five snow days, our plan is to use our Alternative Methods of Instruction plan approved by our state education department. Look for more information about this after the first of the year.
