Support Services for our Students and Staff

Dear Families,
 
I am writing to update you on the shootings that took place in Union City last weekend. Unfortunately, I don’t have much new information to share with you. The police are investigating the shooting and are pursuing leads. Because it is an active investigation, we will not be releasing any information publicly about the students or the shooting. The police will release this information when they can do so without compromising their investigation.
 
We have learned from the UCPD that they do not believe that last weekend's shooting is related to any school events that would pose a threat to our students or schools. However, given that the shootings involved a current student and a former student, we will have mental health and counseling support services available at all of our sites for any students or staff members who need assistance when school resumes on Monday.
 
We will share any information we have as quickly as we can.
 
John
