“We would also like to thank those who have been patient while waiting for this update. While we understand the desire for additional information, we ask our community to trust that we will always update you with any and all information we have available as soon as we are able to do so. We also would like to reassure our community that, during this time, we have worked with fervor to ensure that our students across the district are safe within our schools.”
The district say they continued to follow the increased safety protocols at the middle school and high school campuses throughout the week, and plan to provide additional communication about school safety prior to Monday regarding next week.
The district also is encouraging anyone with questions regarding the security protocol to contact the principal directly.
The district statement concludes, “we would again like to take this opportunity to thank Shillington Police Department, Berks County Sheriff’s Office, other local law enforcement agencies, our students, staff, and families for their patience, concern, and cooperation during this difficult time.”
