Dear CMC Family:
I hope all of you are doing well as we head into spring.
With the unfortunate event that unfolded last evening at Denny’s, I know that the safety of your child is in your thoughts, as well as prayers for the victim of last evening’s senseless act.
At Clackamas Middle College, we know the gravity of these events, and our immense
responsibility for the health and safety of students. We go the extra mile to support and reassure our families that we do everything in our power to create a safe environment for our students. It is with this letter, that I want to take this opportunity to make you aware of the safety protocols we have in place at Clackamas Middle College.
Clackamas Middle College has safety procedures in place and that we practice those safety procedures throughout the school year. We continue to work to review our procedures to make sure our schools are as safe as possible. A District Security Task Force completed a review of procedures and they are being implemented. We have trained safety personnel in our schools, including police officers, who work within all our schools. We have on-going working relationships with area law enforcement.
On the back of this letter, please see the Standard Response Protocol we adhere to if an incident were to arise at Clackamas Middle College.
Please take care of yourselves and please let us know if you have any concerns or questions.
Thanks for your time and have a safe evening!
Brian Sien, Ed.D.
Clackamas Middle College
