Yesterday, an unspeakable tragedy occurred at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. As our community is excited to start summer and a rejuvenation period, Uvalde families are living out our worst nightmare. Violence inside our schools is impossible to process. We send our most precious gifts to schools trusting they will be cared for, loved, supported, and safe. When that trust is violated, it leaves all of us to question our own safety and procedures, and to reflect on what more can be done to keep everyone in our buildings protected. Buhler schools have a number of precautionary measures in place. Each building has a secure entryway. Individuals must identify themselves to office personnel before being allowed entry. Each building also has cameras at the entryway and in various locations in the building. Exterior doors are to remain locked during the day, and gates to playgrounds remain locked and secure. With our recent bond issue, all offices have been relocated to the front of the building, and visitors must go through the office before gaining access to the building. Additionally, staff and students do crisis drills to prepare for an active shooter. Reno County Law Enforcement and county superintendents also work together to ensure communication and response procedures are in place with crisis plans and threat assessment procedures. In the next two weeks, our administration will review those plans, reflect on what we learn from Uvalde to improve our response, and adjust accordingly. Unfortunately, safety precautions such as those listed above are simply that...precautions. Our most effective deterrent is being sure each student feels a sense of belonging in our schools, that each student is supported and has a caring adult they can trust. The other most effective precaution is each of you. Each student, staff member, parent, and community member must remain vigilant in listening for and reporting any questionable behavior or comments to authorities. Every one of us has a role to play in keeping our staff and students safe. I am thankful for the support of our community and dedication to our youth.
