Dear Bobcat Community,
Please know that your child's safety is our top priority. We take several precautions, including locking all exterior doors, practicing safety drills, and engaging in daily visits with Douglas County Sheriff and District Security to ensure your child's well-being. We hold a monthly safety and security meeting with community members and have installed seven security cameras as well as installed the new Raptor Program throughout the school.
It has been a sad week for Douglas County and the STEM community. I would like to continue to keep them in our thoughts as we support the students, family and community members.
We all deal with tragedy in different ways. We have talked with our kids about it and gave them a big hug when they got home from school each day. We were able to talk with our students about being kind to each other, accepting of one another and the importance of reporting situations when we do not feel safe.
When kids are feeling anxious or uneasy from the events this week or are struggling to end the year, please take some time to spend as a family. Dust off an old board game or break out the cards. This will give an opportunity to be surrounded by the comfort of their home and family.
If you or your child need support, please contact our Larkspur administration or school psychologist for guidance. There are several links that have also gone out through the district that might be helpful to you.
As the year ends, I hope your Bobcat student has had a great experience in learning and growing. Whether they are moving on to middle school or continuing as a Larkspur student, we want to wish your family a great summer. Thank you for allowing us to teach your children, it has been an absolute pleasure!
