During the month of April, we honor our military children. We acknowledge the hardships they face due to multiple moves while serving alongside their families, and celebrate their strength, courage, and resiliency. It is our opportunity to show our deep appreciation for their sacrifices.
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

We want to share with you some important information that we have recently received from the Rhode Island State Fusion Center (RISFC), the Middletown Police Department and recent local news reports. According to their report, there have been several hoax phone calls delivered to schools across southeastern New England indicating that a school intruder event is either about to happen or is actively in progress. We are sending this message to prepare our school community in the event that any Middletown School receives one of these calls. Please remember that if a call like this, real or fake is received, our district protocol is that the building will immediately go into "Active Lockdown." This means that doors will be locked, blinds will be closed, and ALICE protocol will be followed. Students and faculty should be dispersed throughout the school and prepared to react. Doors will remain locked and closed and students/faculty/staff should remain quiet until an announcement is made indicating that the Lockdown has ended. The Middletown Police Department will work with us through any safety situation. We willdo our best to communicate immediately about such an event. Safety is our number one priority. Thank you for your support. Encourage everyone, “If you see (hear) something, say something.” Should you have any questions, concerns, or need further information, please do not hesitate to reach out to building administration or Middletown Police. Thank you for your cooperation. Rosemarie K. Kraeger, Superintendent of Schools Anthony M. Pesare, Chief of Police
