Goodrich Area Schools Closed Friday, December 2, 2021
including Children's Center

Dear Goodrich Martian family:

Today was a trying day for our Martian students, staff and families, one filled with fear and uncertainty.  Parents are concerned about the safety of their children, there are rumors that have multiplied as a result of social media, and there are alleged threats within neighboring districts that bring pause as to whether conducting classes tomorrow would be appropriate.

I believe that we, as a school community, need a day to re-group, gather our loved ones close, and have open and honest, age-appropriate conversation with our children about the events that took place in Oxford on Tuesday, November 30.

Therefore tomorrow, December 3, 2021, Goodrich Area Schools will close its doors for all students in grades K-12.  This includes the Children's Center. 

I encourage our families to unplug from social media, silence and set aside cell phones, turn off the news and talk with your children.  Attached are some materials that may guide your conversation.

Here are suggested points to emphasize when talking with your children, taken directly from the National Association of School Psychologists article entitled, “Talking to Children About Violence:  Tips for Parents and Teachers”:

Schools are safe places and we all play a role in school safety.  Be observant and let an adult know if you see or hear something that makes you feel uncomfortable, nervous or frightened. 

Although there is no absolute guarantee that something bad will never happen, it is important to understand the difference between the possibility of something happening and probability that it will affect our school community. 

Senseless violence is hard for everyone to understand.  Doing things that you enjoy, sticking to your normal routine, and being with friends and family help make us feel better and keep us from worrying about the event. 

Sometimes people do bad things that hurt others.  It is important for all of us to know how to get help if we feel really upset or angry. 

Stay away from guns and other weapons.  Tell an adult if you know someone has a gun. 

Violence is never a solution to personal problems. 

Here at Goodrich Area Schools we will always do the best we can to ensure the safety of students while they are in our care.  After the holidays all Goodrich staff will receive an ALICE training refresher. 

Perhaps the best safeguard we can put in place for our children is to teach them the value of human life and that each person they encounter is worthy of love and respect.  If we as a school community reach out to those who are different than us or those who are struggling, we can make everyone feel they belong.

During this season of hope, let us be hope to others.

Sincerely,
Wayne S. Wright
Superintendent of Schools

A Message from the Office of the Superintendent

Good morning:

Our district, along with so many others, is receiving numerous tips and notifications of online comments and potential threats and we want to thank all students and family members who have come forward.  Please be assured that ALL information brought to the attention of school officials is reviewed and followed up on by administration, our School Resource Officer, and/or other law enforcement officials.  Each allegation of a threat is thoroughly investigated, if deemed credible students will be removed from the school setting and investigated by law enforcement.  

At this time, our administration and local law enforcement have deemed all allegations of threats as NOT CREDIBLE.  Most of the alleged threats circulating on social media have been traced back to rumors or threats (some over 3 months old) from other school districts. 

While we are putting our efforts into investigating each tip, the sharing of gossip and rumors that have no credibility are stalling our efforts.  We respectfully ask our students and community to stop sharing these threats on social media platforms.  Doing this causes duplicate reports and rumors to form and continue to spread. 

Emotions are very high right now and understandably so.  This is a frightening time for our students, our entire school community, and our state. 

Once again I want to reiterate that we are investigating every threat that comes to our attention and as of right now, there are NO VALID THREATS to and no weapons in any of our school buildings.  We want to assure you that it is safe for your student to attend school. 

We will continue to share information with you and encourage you to have open dialogue with your students about the tragic events that occurred at Oxford High School.  Hopefully this will lead to meaningful conversation and an opportunity for you, as a parent, to ease some of your student’s fears.  Until then, please be assured that we are here to support your students academically, socially, and emotionally.

Thank you,
Wayne S. Wright
Superintendent of Schools
