Dear Families, 

The tragic news out of Connecticut today reminds us how precious life is and how we must do everything we can to ensure the safety of all of our children every day.  

This afternoon we alerted our buildings to be extra vigilant regarding visitors in our schools to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff. Please know that we regularly review our security and safety measures and that every District building has a crisis plan in place. In light of this occurrence, all plans will be reviewed immediately to assess situations of this nature. The Troy School District works cooperatively with our local police and fire departments in the development of these crisis plans. Please be assured that the safety of our children and staff is a priority. 

Please join us as we put the families impacted by today's tragedy in our thoughts and prayers. 

Sincerely, 

Barbara Fowler

Superintendent
