Superintendent's Message

KCCC Parents,

Below is an announcement that Mr. Lavin, our high school director, made to students this week.

“I wanted to take a few minutes to remind you that what you say matters. We expect all conversations to be professional, appropriate, and respectful. 

Be very mindful of what you say to your friends and classmates. This includes comments made at lunch, in the halls, in your labs and classrooms, and what you post on social media.

Comments made without thinking or as a joke to be funny, could still be disruptive and cause concern for others around you. 

It is never appropriate to joke about guns or school violence. We expect students to notify school personnel if they hear about weapons on school grounds, acts of violence, or other threatening or inappropriate behaviors. Students and staff that overhear these comments may not be able to decipher if it’s a joke or a threat. Also, it’s equally inappropriate to falsely accuse students of making inappropriate comments just to get them in trouble.  

Each situation will be investigated, and if something inappropriate was said, there will be consequences. 

Please continue to keep our school a safe and professional learning environment. Thank you. We appreciate you.”

We take the safety of your children very seriously and have worked hard to create an environment where students respect one another and their teachers. Your students know that they play an important role in keeping our school a safe place including See Something Say Something, wearing their IDs, and keeping outside doors shut.  We have implemented many security measures over the years and continue to do so, including training staff in many areas including threat assessment, situational awareness, and much more.  We were recently awarded a $50,000 safety grant and just submitted another one last week.

We appreciate your support! We ask that you discuss with your child the importance of reporting things to us immediately and also to be responsible in their speech. 

Thank you.
Kathy Greenich, Superintendent
