We are deeply saddened by the devastating tragedy experienced by Robb Elementary School and Uvalde ISD. Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with the victims and their families as well as their entire school community as this tragedy affected so many in such a small community in our state.

As we prepare to wrap up the final week of the school year, we want to assure you that we will remain vigilant in ensuring that our schools remain a safe and secure place for our students and staff to attend school and learn. We will continue to look out for such situations that may compromise their well-being as well as remain steadfast in our commitment to student and staff safety. This unfortunate event is a humbling reminder that it takes all of us to ensure our campuses remain a safe place to learn and grow. If you ever witness or suspect something, contact local officials to investigate. BISD parents and students can also report potential threats to our schools through our Keep BISD Safe site as well.

Few events hit home for children and families like a school shooting. When children see such an event on television or on web-based news flashes it is natural for them to worry about their own school and their own safety, particularly if the violence occurred in their home state. The goal is to reassure students that although there is a possibility of violence occurring in a school, the probability of a school experiencing a high-profile violent act is extremely low. Below are a few sites parents may find helpful if discussion comes up related to the recent school shooting.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to our students, staff, and parents to do all that we can to provide a safe environment. We join our colleagues and communities throughout Texas and the nation in uplifting the Uvalde community.
