BPS 2018 Patriotic Performance: "Thank You America"

Responding to the Incident in Florida

Good Afternoon,


At a time when everyone is anxious about school safety, I think it appropriate to reassure you of the measures we take at CUSD to keep students and staff safe.


  1. We have safety drills which are practiced frequently.  After each drill we assess and look for ways to make things even more safe.
  2. We invested, and will continue to invest, in safety infrastructure and equipment upgrades. 
  3. Our safety protocols demand contacting the police, even in cases where we have no tangible evidence of a threat.
  4. Even the least possible credible hint of a threat would send our sites into Lockdown mode immediately.
  5. Parents are notified each and every time we have any credible hint of a threat.  
  6. We do not, and will not, place our students in danger by pretending "it wouldn't happen here."   We are sadly aware that violence can happen anywhere.  
  7. Our safety mantra is "Regret is always harder."  Which means I would rather see us go into 1,000 unnecessary lockdowns than fail to go into lockdown when it is really needed.  

I hope our community and parents trust that we place student safety at the top of our priority list.  And if it brings you any comfort, my own son attends Colusa Schools.  I do not think my approach to school safety would change even if he did not, but it does speak to my personal investment in the safety of our students. 


My professional and personal commitment to keep our ALL our children safe is, I hope, obvious, and will continue to be so.


Sending condolences to the Families affected by the incident in Florida.



Dwayne Newman
