Greetings WPS Families:

As a follow up to my communication on May 24, I would like to share this link with you to a document on our district website that provides information regarding district safety and security. In addition, the following links serve as a resource for how to talk to our children during this challenging time.

This weekend there are many activities on campus. I wish you all a relaxing, fun time with your families. WPS Director of Finance and Operations Mr. Cross and I met with Weston Police Chief Henion and leaders in the Weston Fire Department, and Weston Emergency Services yesterday to review these events. Rest assured that these town agencies will be actively present and are committed to the safety and security of our community.

Sincerely,

Lisa Wolak, Superintendent of Schools
