Dear Wayne-Westland Community School District Community,
As you know, safety is a top priority in our District. We continuously evaluate the safety measures we have in place to ensure we do everything we can to protect our students and staff from harm. Through this lens, I want to share a message with you about an upsetting trend affecting our state and country. Over the last few weeks, several school threats across Wayne County have been made in and out of school and on social media.

Dear Wayne-Westland Students, Staff and Families,
As we remember and reflect on the tragic events at Oxford High School last November, let us take a moment to offer our support to their entire community. On Nov. 30, 2021, devastation struck Oxford High School, shaking students, educators and parents in Michigan and across the nation. Please join me in remembering the students who lost their lives that day: Madisyn Baldwin, Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana and Justin Shilling.
One year later, it is still difficult to comprehend this tragedy. We know there will be an increase in news coverage and social media postings this week regarding Oxford. Unfortunately, this tragedy is also a sobering reminder that terrible events can happen anywhere at any time.
