Welcome back for another great school year! It’s wonderful to have our students and staff back in our schools, which are buzzing again with fun and learning.
The learning that happens every day on our campuses and in our classrooms is truly at the heart of everything we do as a district, and ensuring a safe learning environment for students and staff is critical to our mission. School safety is on everyone’s mind after this spring’s tragedy in Uvalde, and Lubbock ISD is more vigilant than ever when it comes to our safety and security standards. Protecting the 26,000 students we have the privilege to serve, as well as more than 3,000 employees, is our highest priority.
This year, we want to provide more opportunities for our parents and guardians to not only learn about our school safety practices, but also be equipped with information about keeping your children safe inside and outside of the school building.
We’re hosting our first Lubbock ISD Community Safety Meeting on Thursday, September 1 at 6 p.m. in the Estacado High School cafeteria, and all parents, guardians and community members are invited to attend. Presentations on the following topics will be followed by opportunities for discussion and feedback:
Drug Awareness: Chad Curry, UMC-EMS Training Chief
Social Media: Cary Fulgham, Lubbock ISD Digital Learning Coordinator
School-Based Police Officers: Ray Mendoza, Lubbock ISD Police Chief
School Safety and Security: Stacy Carter, Lubbock ISD Director of School Safety and Security
Please share this information with your friends, family, and neighbors. It takes all of us to keep our children safe, and we appreciate your partnership. We hope to see you there!
