Tragedy in Texas

Dear Millburn Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we once again confront a tragic school shooting at an elementary school in Texas.  Students and families who were about to start their summer vacation are now gathering in sadness, and we join them in their heartbreak.

 

I want to assure you that Millburn Schools take the safety and security of our students and staff as our highest priority.  We have enhanced security procedures in recent years to ensure that our staff and students teach and learn in the safest environment, and we continue to be vigilant in these efforts. 

The Millburn Police Department will be providing an enhanced police presence around our schools today and in the coming weeks.  We do not anticipate any issues in our community, but we always want to remind our staff and students to follow security protocols, and to be aware of your surroundings.

 

Our counselors, social workers, and nurses are available for any students, staff or parent who has concerns of any kind. The best thing for our students is to maintain a sense of normalcy, and for adults to be there to listen and support them.  Here are some resources that may be helpful for you and your families:
