Good morning PS 101 Families,
We are all horrified by the events that took place yesterday in Texas at Robb Elementary School. Our deepest condolences and prayers go out to the entire community and especially those who were directly impacted by this senseless tragedy.
As a reminder, PS 101 and all NYC schools are trained on General Response Protocols and Emergency Preparedness for various situations including lockdown drills and evacuations drills approximately 10 times per school year. No one is permitted inside the building without showing identification to our Safety officer. Additionally, we have cameras throughout the school building.
While we will all always have a level of uncertainty and concern, it is a reminder that if you see something you need to say something, whether to the school or by calling the police especially when it comes to postings on Social Media.
Today, together we send out prayers to the Uvalde Community in Texas and hope our government officials will work together to come up with solutions to prevent these senseless tragedies.
