Holicong Middle School

Updates From Mr. Bucher

Dear Holicong Parents:

As a Nation, we are still in disbelief over Friday’s tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. An event like this impacts all of us. Please be assured that we continuously review and adjust our safety procedures at Holicong. The safety of the children and the staff at Holicong is always at the forefront of my day’s work in the school. As always, if you have questions about the safety and security of students and staff at Holicong, please contact me.

Additionally, please refer to the Resources published by the National Association of School Psychologists to assist your child as we all cope with this tragic event. Please also feel free to contact Mrs. Kleeman, Mrs. Louderback, or Mr. Stryker in our Guidance Department for additional assistance.

Sincerely,

Jason Bucher
