Today the Santa Cruz City Schools district distributed a letter to parents outlining our school safety procedures and encouraging parents and students to utilize the services of our trained counselors as a resource for coping with the tragedy in Connecticut.

Such an event reminds us of the preciousness of our children. We want you to know we hold their safety and well being as our highest responsibility.  — Eileen Brown, SCCS Director of Student Services
