Good morning everyone, It has been a long week this week, and I am sure you are ready for this weekend; I know I am!  I have engaged many students in conversations about how we can stand strong together and make sure we continue to have a safe school.  I also met with our Student Council, and they are in the process of developing a plan for March 14th, the National Walk-Out Day.  Even though it is a GROWL day, I am in full support of our students' freedom of expression and our students' goal to unite our student body to seek change in the world. Stay tuned for more information.  In the meantime, I need your help with a few things that will make us all feel safer:

·  Don't prop doors open.

·  Don't let people in the building; all visitors and students who enter school after school starts must enter through the front entrance.

·  If you see a person in the building that doesn't go to school here, please let an adult know.

·  Don't have food delivered to school for lunch. It increases the number of visitors we have on campus.

·  Please have a pass in the hallway and if you don't have an ID, get one from the office.  After spring break, we are looking at making IDs mandatory, and we will buy you nice Cambridge lanyards.

Please continue to monitor your social media and if you see a post that is inappropriate, please tell a trusted adult in the building. You can also anonymously alert us and the district by emailing safety@fultonschool.org or using the app https://asp.schoolmessenger.com/fultonschools/quicktip/

I am working on a training on active shooter protocol and hope to be able to share that with you next Wednesday.  Next week we have three days of school, and you will have a nice long four-day weekend.  Take care of yourself and others and have a great rest of your day and weekend! 

Thank you,
Dr. Spurka

Good morning students, in talking with many of our teachers and students the past few days, I realize that many of us are still in shock with what took place last Wednesday in Broward County, Florida.  Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victims and their families.

This tragedy has caused a lot of conversation about school safety in our community and across our nation.  I believe that we need to continue to engage in conversations about how all of us can make Cambridge a safer place.  Students, you are the reason why we come to work every day and the reason why we chose the field of education.  It is important for you to be part of our conversations and part of our safety plan.  I am providing you with some things you can do to contribute to the safety of our school:

  • Do not prop exterior doors open .
  • During the school day, 8:20 am to 3:30 pm, the only doors for access to the building should be the front door and the rear door (by the bus lane). These areas are supervised by staff.  Please do not open any exterior doors for anyone during school.  
  • Report any suspicious behavior, including social media posts, to a trusted adult in the building.  You can also use the anonymous tip line which links to our Fulton County Police.

 https://asp.schoolmessenger.com/fultonschools/quicktip/ or e-mail: safety@fultonschools.org

 

I do realize that the media coverage of this tragedy and the constant conversation in the news can confuse and frighten us because we may feel that we, our friends, or our loved ones, may be in danger.  I encourage you to talk with your counselor if you need additional support or if you see any signs of distress or concerning behavior with your friends and other students. 

I will continue to meet with our student council and will continue to look for opportunities to engage you in training and conversation about our school safety plan, as well as how we can continue to show our solidarity as Cambridge Bears. If you have ideas or thoughts on what we can do to support you, you can always see or e-mail your teacher, counselor, or assistant principal or me!  Have a great rest of your day and rest of your week, Dr. Spurka.

Edward J. Spurka, Ed.D.
