This morning, two students reported a suspicious vehicle near the high school. If you are leaving campus for lunch or walking home after school today, please adhere to the following safety precautions:
- Avoid walking by yourself. Take measures to walk with a friend.
- Be aware of your surroundings. Make sure you can see and hear your surroundings. For example, if you normally wear earbuds, make sure you can still hear what is happening around you.
- Walk with purpose. Take the most direct, visible route to your destination and walk at a brisk pace. In other words, avoid wandering, lingering, or stopping.
- If you see or hear something suspicious, report it to a school staff member immediately. If you need to report something that happens on your way home from school, report it to the police and inform school staff as soon as possible.
We are working with the Holland Police Department to ensure that the areas around our school buildings are well patrolled. We have also communicated with our K-7 buildings, so that our younger students are also aware of these added safety measures.
Thank you to the students who reported what they saw this morning. Your willingness to seek out a school staff member has helped keep us all safe. Have a safe afternoon.
