The top honor was announced Friday, March 20, at a banquet during the Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) National Convention & Expo, held in Seattle from March 17-21. More than 5,000 teachers and physical activity professionals attended.

Safety

As you remember, we were directed to go into a lockdown/shelter in place due to an incident at a nearby apartment complex on Thursday December 18th.  Our staff and student response to our initial call for a lockdown was amazing. 

I realize that in situations like this everyone’s experience is different –good, bad or indifferent as evidenced by the emails I received afterwards. 

We receive our directives from the Seattle Police Department and our District Security when situations like this arise and our security was on site during the most recent event.  Our safety committee met the next morning to reflect and make needed adjustments. 

An important reflection of mine is to dedicate enough time to effectively communicate with our families, including:

  •  A Robocall (voice recording) first then email—I apologize that this did not happen during the last incident as an ‘emergency” email was only sent.
  •  Provide crucial details as needed and known; for example, this incident/threat was nearby not in our school or on campus—so you should know that important piece of information
Again, with the different experiences that I was made aware of, please realize that our intention is and will always be to keep our students safe. 

Thank you for your feedback as this only helps continue to improve our practice!

GO BULLDOGS!
