  • Dear TTUSD families, 

    We were heartbroken to learn of the mass shooting at a Florida school today. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends of the victims and their entire school community.

    These horrific situations are so difficult to understand, let alone explain to students. Below are a few resources to provide some support:

    What we do to ensure student safety:

    At TTUSD, safety is our top priority. We want to be as prepared as possible in the unlikely event of a disaster. Throughout the school year, we conduct numerous safety drills at each of our schools to ensure we are keeping our students and staff as safe as possible.

    Over the past year, our district has been seeking opportunities to address armed intruder training for school sites and staff. After a great deal of research, we found a comprehensive training program called ALICE that we have implemented. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate. The ALICE training standard takes a departure from the traditional lockdown process that was in place in the District. ALICE embraces active decision making on the part of the staff and older students to address an armed intruder including an active shooter situation or threatening scenario.

    Before school started for the 2017-2018 school year, administrators and teachers participated in an online ALICE training. In the fall, we employed certified trainers from the ALICE Institute to present training materials and run real-life active shooter scenarios with our teachers and select staff. The training included lockdown/barricade strategies and evacuation and counter drills which will prepare staff to react in the event of an on-campus intruder. Our next steps are to increase awareness for parents on our ALICE protocols through parent workshops and educate our students with age-appropriate information.

    Our priority is to remain vigilant with campus safety and security at each of our school sites, and each school site has a comprehensive safety plan that they employ. Our schools are getting much-needed upgrades that include safety enhancements, thanks to funding from Measures E and U.

    At TTUSD, we have strong partnerships with our local law enforcement and work closely with them to ensure student safety. We are incredibly fortunate to have two full-time School Resource Officers as part of our TTUSD team to help ensure our students feel safe and supported and can thrive both emotionally and academically. Officer Allyson Prero from Placer County Sheriff's Office is at our Lakeside schools, and Officer Brad Beers from the Truckee Police Department is at our Truckee schools. They are also active in our district safety committees and were a pivotal part of our decision to implement ALICE.

    Rest assured that we take safety very seriously, and are committed to providing the safest place possible for students, staff and our community.
