Metal Wanding at Grant Middle School

May 8, 2013

Dear Parents,

Please know that the safety and security of our children are of the utmost importance to the staff and administration at Grant Middle School. In response to the recent news, Grant Middle School, in cooperation with Springfield Public Schools and the Springfield Police Department, conducted a search of all students using wands that detect metal.

I am very happy to report that the conduct of the students and the parents dropping off their children was excellent. Upon conclusion of the wanding, school resumed in a fashion where the focus was on teaching and learning.

At this time I would like to remind you to please talk to your child about the importance of not sharing bookbags, coats, or lockers with anyone. Please stress the need for them to always report any activity they see that has the potential for injury to others.

As always, feel free to contact the administration at Grant Middle School if you have any questions.

Lori Smith, Assistant Principal
Grant Middle School
