PSESD wants to make communicating school safety and student walk-out messages easier for our schools and districts. Below you will find a list of resources that you can use as a reference when creating your own messaging around school safety, gun violence and student walk-outs. We will continue to keep this page updated with new messaging and communications.
If your school or district has anything they would like to contribute to this list, please email Braxton Kellogg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
