NEWS FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT

Increased Law Enforcement Presence

 You may have noticed an increase in the visibility of local police officers in and around our schools in recent months. This is an intentional effort to strengthen relationships between our students, staff, and law enforcement personnel, while also adding another layer of security to our campuses. This represents the first of a two-part plan to increase school safety, suggested by the district's Crisis Response and Life Safety Advisory Committee. The second component involves an agreement with the Charles City Police Department for a part-time School Resource Officer (also referred to as Peace Officer). This individual will have a daily presence in our buildings next school year as a means of further increasing safety and security throughout the district.

Confirming the safety and whereabouts of all students at the start of the school day is very helpful to all of us. In addition, if you know your child(ren) will be dismissed early from school, please let office secretaries know as soon as possible, to avoid last-minute interruptions to classrooms.

SAFE+SOUND IOWA

The Iowa Department of Public Safety has a free website available to all students and families to report threats to school safety. Just go to the Sate+Sound website to anonymously report school safety concerns. Since this website was launched last year it has received over 140 school-related safety reports which were immediately shared with law enforcement and the affected schools for further investigation. This enabled everyone to make an informed decision regarding the concern, so everyone could respond accordingly. Please explore this important safety reporting tool at your convenience by visiting Safe+Sound Iowa.

BUS INFO... Starting September 11, if a student does not have a bus pass after school, the student will be asked to go to the office to call for a ride home. The bus will pick students up in the mornings without a pass at this time.  If your student needs a pass, email the transportation department at  , call 641-257-6590, or let the school offices know. Please note that requests may not be processed on the same day, including on September 11.
