    We are thinking of our colleagues and others dealing with the shooting at Reynolds High with the deepest sympathy.  Our association and membership extends our condolences and any support we can provide.

    A tragedy like this hits close to home, and causes all of us to ask how prepared we are for an event such as this. To that end, we should all take a moment to look at our policies, plans of action and emergency protocols to make sure they are up-to-date. We have posted some resources to help with that process.

    If you have others that have been helpful to you, let us know. We’ll add them on our site.
