LCSD to Host Conversation on Safety and Security
Tuesday, March 13, 2018 -
Since the tragedy at Stoneman Douglas last month, we have seen an increase in reported school threats across the country. Many of you have called, written or stopped me while I was out in the community to share your concerns and ask what the Liverpool Central School District does each day to keep our children safe.
Because this topic is so important, the district will host a community conversation regarding safety and security on Wednesday, March 21, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Liverpool High School Cafeteria (4338 Wetzel Road – please use the auditorium entrance to enter the building). That evening we will share with you a safety and security overview at both the district and state levels. While we won’t be able to share all of our safety and security measures and protocols, the meeting will provide you with some answers to the many questions I have received over the last month.
Once the overview is completed, those in attendance will gather in small groups to share their thoughts, ask questions, and make suggestions regarding safety and security. Information shared that evening will be added to a safety and security document that will be posted on the LCSD Web site (www.liverpool.k12.ny.us).
To date, our community has been very supportive of school security measures and capital projects that include security improvements within our buildings. While security comes with a price, both in terms of money and restrictions of convenience, your input regarding the level of comfort that you have with our present systems and your ideas about possible security enhancements will be welcome at this meeting.
As always, the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority, and your assistance is a valuable resource. We hope you can join us on March 21.
Dr. Mark F. Potter
Superintendent of Schools
