How to relate this to kids:

Reach out to your students and remind them of the part they must play to help make our schools safer (no place can be completely safe—only safer).


To help you achieve this goal, I've created everything you'll need from what to say to the students to a letter to send to the parents. I guarantee that if you do this very simple thing, you'll make an immediate difference in the safety of your school. Here's what we're going to do. We're going to tell the students when and how to report a threat with one simple sentence.


"Tell the first adult you see if you're afraid for your safety or the safety of others."


Thank You!
