Dear Parents,


At 9:30 a.m. today we were informed by Genesee Township that there was a barricaded gunman near Richfield and Center roads. Weston elementary was put into lock down due to the location of the incident. Burton police were quickly on the scene to provide oversight. All other buildings continued their safety procedures, securing entry ways and exits.


We appreciate the quick response of our Genesee Township and Burton officers and our administrators. Within minutes we were assured that the gunman was secured. We continue to appreciate the cooperation of our community in keeping our kids safe.


Thank you,


Patti Yorks

Board of Education sets March work session

The Board of Education will hold a work session at 5 p.m. March 26 in the Administration Building second-floor conference room.

Help kids understand school shootings

• Try and keep routines as normal as possible. Kids gain security from the predictability of routine, including attending school.
• Limit exposure to television and the news. 
• Be honest with kids and share with them as much information as they are developmentally able to handle.
• Listen to kids’ fears and concerns.
• Reassure kids that the world is a good place to be, but that there are people who do bad things.
• Parents and adults need to first deal with and assess their own responses to crisis and stress.
• Rebuild and reaffirm attachments and relationships.
• Each Kearsley school building has counselors and social workers on hand for students who need additional support.
