In light of the recent shooting in Nashville and the hoax calls and threats school districts are receiving in Rhode Island, I want to reassure you that keeping our schools safe requires continuous work and communication with our students, staff and families. Extra police presence will be at our schools in the upcoming days. In collaboration with the Middletown Police Department, the Middletown Public Schools evaluates our safety plans, procedures and emergency drills regularly. We make adjustments and are always strengthening our preparations and possible responses to crises. Controlled entries, video cameras, emergency notifications and more are important tools we utilize. Our students and community are a powerful part of keeping our schools safe. Communication If a crisis occurs at your school or in the district, factual information will be delivered to you at the contact information you have provided. It is our promise that whenever a safety situation arises, we will communicate with you as soon as facts are available. Additional updates are sent if new information is discovered. How you can help You can play an important role to help stop misinformation. Focusing on facts and remaining calm will help our resources work through situations as quickly as possible. Embellishing and posting or reposting false information can have serious effects, creating panic and anxiety for students and parents. Let’s work together to prevent rumors – especially on social media – so that fear and uncertainty do not gain power in stressful situations. The Middletown Public Schools and the Middletown Police Department are committed to keeping our students and staff safe. Our partnership with the community helps make this happen. We appreciate your continued support. Rosemarie K. Kraeger, Superintendent of Schools Anthony M. Pesare, Chief of Police
