The subject of school shootings is incredibly difficult to address, particularly with parents of prospective Cornerstone students. It’s impossible not to be emotionally charged about the safety of young children.
As owners and parents, we feel an immense responsibility to do what we can to create and maintain a safe environment. It is balanced by a strong desire to support the natural beauty and charm of the campus, a part of which is a reflection of the fact that we do not employ armed security guards or require visitors to walk through a metal detector or submit to physical pat-downs.
The first step is to educate ourselves, staff and the parents, on the latest data. We all play a role in the safety of our children and awareness is a vital prerequisite to any security plan at any school.
