Dear Lacey Parents, Students, and Community Members:
On behalf of the Board of Education and district administration, I want to write to you once again regarding safety and security in our schools. In times after a tragedy, our emotions and reactions to rumors easily distort the truth and rational reasoning. It is imperative we all understand that the safety of our children remains our number one priority.
As a district, we have a security plan in place. We hold regular drills, in each building for various types of emergency situations, in conjunction with the Lacey Township Police. In addition, our comprehensive staff training program, including training of all substitute teachers, provides a consistent and strong level of preparedness. Please be aware, we cannot share details of these procedures without compromising safety. The Board of Education and administration have and will always continue to look at ways to enhance the district’s safety and security protocols. As a result, we routinely meet with Police Chief Michael C. DiBella and his staff regarding their safety and security concerns as it relates to your children and our school system. The Board, administrators and I would like to thank the Lacey Township Police for their swift response when needed and tireless efforts maintaining our safe school community. We are so fortunate to be able to collaborate with such an accomplished team. Also, thank you to the Lacey community for their patience and support as we continue to take necessary measures to ensure that our schools, staff, and students remain safe. In the event of a school security alert, you will be notified in multiple forums to include email, text, phone, and social media.
Please remember to be a mindful citizen and if you see something, say something. There is nothing more powerful than an engaged citizen who picks up the phone and calls in a concern to our offices or the Lacey Police. We appreciate all those in our community who took the time to reach out to our offices and administrators since last week's tragedy in Parkland Florida. We also ask that each of you be cautious and responsible with the information you share on social media, and the discussion you have on public sites. Please pause before you post and measure the impact of your words. Our children and their safety are paramount. The release of information on a public forum, whether facts or hearsay, can compromise the safety of our students, staff and the overall community.
Mr. Craig Wigley
Superintendent of Schools

The Meet&Eat is an initiative that allows the superintendent of schools to reach out and gain perspective from the student's point of view about their experience at Lacey Township Public Schools. The superintendent will have lunch with a small group of students at their school. The purpose is for the superintendent to connect with our most valued stakeholders and learn about what they like or don't like about their school. This will provide an opportunity for the superintendent to understand what issues students face at school or among their peers and give kids an active voice as a member of Lacey Township Public Schools. He will be meeting with students over lunch once a month to discuss matters of mutual concern and interest regarding their school. He will go to the schools and meet students that have signed up to have lunch who were selected by the principal. He plans to have lunches twice a month for grades 4-12.
Registration is open for the 2017-2018 school year. Use the Enroll link in the Important Links section to begin the registration process.
