Superintendent Samuel Lee released a public comment on the deadly school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
Dr. Samuel Lee's letter to the community:
Dear Bristol Township School District Community,
It is with heavy heart and continued prayers for the victims and community of Newtown, Connecticut that I feel compelled to confirm our commitment to the safety and security of the students of the Bristol Township School District.
The district has a Comprehensive School Safety Plan that provides prevention, mitigation, and response protocol for numerous possible scenarios that could compromise our number one priority, the safety of our students. Both staff and students are trained and practice these procedures with the fondest hope that they never have to be enacted. We remain proactive and vigilant regarding the safety of our students and community.
While we continue to keep the Newtown, Connecticut and Sandy Hook Elementary School communities in our thoughts and prayers, we also stand ready and prepared to assist and support our students and families with any concerns you may have.
Samuel Lee, Ed.D.
