  • 3-Pronged Approach to Safety

    As we think about and pray for those directly affected by the tragic shooting in Santa Clarita, we also continue to revisit our three-pronged approach to safety: educating our children, refining our safety protocols, and unifying as a community.
     
    The events prompted by a student within Saugus High School remind us once again that there is much more power in creating safety from within than imposing it from without and after the fact – more power in increasing our students’ agency and social-emotional learning than in only ramping up physical security.
     
    We start by educating our children to feel worthy and connected to themselves, their peers, and the world around them – to feel a part of a larger whole in which they play a unique and important part. Through social-emotional learning, children are given tools to constructively deal with their feelings and to practice healthy interactions with others. I remain grateful to all of you and to our teachers for our continued partnership to rear children who know the value of respecting themselves and others, who take responsibility for their actions and their community, who are honest in their communication, and who shine the light of compassion on every person and situation.
     
    In addition to putting a priority on social-emotional learning, Berkeley Hall has very strong safety procedures and protocols in place. Because the safety of your children is our number one priority, our leadership team continuously monitors our emergency procedures, reviews safety plans with local authorities, and mindfully implements and refines safe practices on campus. 
     
    This combined approach keeps our community safe from the inside out. We are grateful that every member of our community plays a part in this effort, and as a community, we stand united in support of our core values of respect, responsibility, honesty, and compassion.
