He stated, “over the past two days the district has taken significant steps to address this situation.
He added, “I met with all staff members K-12, addressed the entire 7-12 student body, and the counseling staff has been made available to students, as we recognized support and resources are an important tool.”
Superintendent Hayden further remarked, “We are continuing to work with law enforcement as they conduct their investigation. Our district is taking this matter and all matters regarding student safety very seriously. The values of responsibility, respect, and ethical behavior are fundamental to our community.”
