Please take a few minutes to complete the 2012-2013 Burke County Public School Parent Survey and let us know how we are doing!
(Posted Monday, December 17, 2012)
My intent with this message is to assure you we will be working with increased focus this week and beyond to address the physical safety of our children.
Law Enforcement from the Burke County Sheriff’s Department and the Waynesboro Police Department have been invited to walk through our schools, as they have in the past, not in response to any threat but rather a police initiative to enhance safety and security around our schools.
Our school safety plans are in place. We have the ability to lockdown our schools and evacuate if necessary, with shelter in place.
Today, we begin the process of reviewing and evaluating these plans to determine what else can be done to make our schools as safe as possible.
Burke County is an exciting learning community with caring and supportive personnel, students, and families. Know that your child will receive a quality education in the Burke County School System. With a cooperative effort and concerted focus, we can and will have an outstanding year filled with wonderful accomplishments.
Thank you for the support each of you provides. By working together, we can achieve at the highest possible level! Do not hesitate to call on any of our personnel. We are here to ensure your child's safety and to provide your child with an exemplary education.
