Message from the Principal
A few parents have asked about our Crisis plan. We do take your student's safety with the utmost concern.
Any threat that involves the school or students is escalated to admin. This could be through social media, teacher, community, parent or student report. Admin takes appropriate action swiftly and also then notifies the Dallas ISD Police Department. Through an investigation, they quickly deem if the threat is credible or not. Admin then responds appropriately. Should the threat be deemed credible or if a disruption occurs to the school day, parents are notified.
As far as reporting. We have the motto- See Something, Hear something, Say something. This has been communicated to our staff, teachers, students, and community. We also watch social media carefully.
The information is also available on the Dallas ISD website:
September 21st Dallas ISD College Fair Night- 5:00-7:00 Bus and Dinner Provided- have students see the counselor for more info. This is an off campus event with the district. representatives from

We look forward to a great 6th week of school!
Please contact your student's AP for specific questions
Ms. Williams is the 11th and 12th grade AP. (email@example.com)

Our protocol for concerns is to start with the teacher, then the AP and finally, the principal if necessary.
As always- thank you for the support of the school! This community of parents, teachers, and students is awesome to work for, and I feel blessed every day to have this opportunity. Our door is always open for questions, concerns, or comments.
