Hello Parents of Boys and Girls Club Students and Families.

This is Dr. DeBora.

Let me begin this message by apologizing for not getting this message to you last night.

Yesterday afternoon there was police activity in one of the San Elijo neighborhoods. We were advised by law enforcement to secure our campus during our after school hours. This advisement was given to us after law enforcement was on the scene; however, both SEES and SEMS chose to shelter our staff and students.

Boys and Girls Club students entered the band room directly from our eating area. We remained there for approximately fifteen minutes until we heard that the situation was not a threat to anyone.

Your children did a fabulous job and I know that a few kids communicated with you from their cell phones. Any parents that did arrive to pick up their children, called the Boys and Girls Coordinator and the students were escorted through the PAC to the front doors adjacent to our parking lot and connected with their parents.

We will continue to place our students’ safety first at all times. Please communicate with me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you, and again my apologies for the tardiness of this message.
