Dear Parents,
Due to the recent events across our country, we find ourselves operating at a “more alert” level or status. All of us at St. Bernadette School want to have the safest environment possible for our students, teachers, and parents.

It is not my intention to cause more stress than we need or to unnecessarily alarm you. The safety of St. Bernadette School has never been in question. This morning, we had a visit from a sheriff’s deputy. The Fairfield County Sherriff’s Department wanted to be present in our community schools. Being unsure of our start time, our visit happened a little later in the morning. The deputy toured our school and offered assurances and informational resources to keep us informed of best practices in being prepared for any type of emergency.

Also, we had an additional guest in our building. He is the godfather of one of our preschool students, and is also an officer in the Carroll Police Department. He accompanied our students to lunch and to the playground.

As always, we will strive to be as cautious as possible and to make our school the safest it can be - every day.

Blessings,
Pam Eltringham
