Aaron Asplund, Templeton Unified School District Superintendent, invites all Templeton parents and community members to a special meeting with information about how the district responds to threats. Here is what he shared about the upcoming meeting:
Unfortunately it is almost a daily occurrence to hear about threatening situations occurring in communities and schools. Templeton, as both a community and as a school district, enjoys a relatively quiet and safe environment, but we are not immune from potential threats. We recognize that you have entrusted us with educating your children, and this stewardship begins with ensuring students and staff are safe. TUSD takes our responsibility for the safety and well-being of our students very seriously. Further, establishing and maintaining a trusting and inclusive school culture is vital for students to feel safe and supported, and to feel comfortable reporting when they see, hear, or feel that something is not right.
We invite you to join us as we share information about the many elements in play when responding to and addressing threats. Topics will include:
- District communication: How, when, and what
- Roles and protocols of law enforcement and school administration
- School culture and its relation to threats
Thank you again for the opportunity to serve and care for your students. We hope to see you on Thursday, December 5 at the Vineyard Elementary MPR, from 6:30-8:00pm.
If you have any questions you can contact the TUSD district office at 805 434-5800.
