EWSD to Host a Community Conversation Around School Safety

ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. - The Essex Westford School District (EWSD), in partnership with Voices For Education, will host a conversation and information session focused on school and community safety on Monday, April 2 from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Essex High School cafeteria. Following the event that took place in Parkland, Fla. on February 14 and also the recent threats we have seen in our own district, EWSD would like to invite our families and the public to discuss how we can work together to create a safer community.


The safety of the children and staff is a top priority for the district and an ongoing topic that has only been amplified of late. As part of the forum, EWSD wants to hear your concerns around school and community safety, share the safety practices and procedures that are currently in place or planned at the school/district level, and also provide an opportunity for participants to generate ideas about how we can all play a role in making our schools and community a safer place to live and learn.


Students, parents, staff, and community members are all welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.
