Mercury Monday Memo

December 17, 2012

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The safety and welfare of our learning center students is the primary concern of our teachers, staff, and leadership team. In light of the tragic events in Connecticut on Friday, a thorough review of our existing Site Safety Plan has been initiated. The purpose of this review is to update and refine our emergency procedures and to re-evaluate the security of our facility. Our goal is to make any change necessary to ensure that our students are safe and that Mercury personnel can properly respond to any emergency situation. Parents and guardians can help us keep their child safe by making sure that we have updated student information. We ask that parents and guardians keep the office informed of any changes in custody, address, phone numbers, or emergency contact information.

We look forward to working with you to ensure a safe environment for your child.
