Letter from the Superintendent - May 27, 2022

May 27, 2022

Dear Parents and Guardians:

This was certainly a very trying week in every school community.  The realization that there are no easy answers when it comes to the overwhelming problem of school violence creates more frustration.  The sincere concern and the anxiety many are feeling is palpable.  

While we cannot control many of the issues related to school violence that are currently under debate, we can act locally.  I wanted to share that the Wayne Board of Education, Wayne Police Department, and Wayne Township are all working together on some meaningful solutions to the concerns so many of you have expressed.  The primary goal of this collaboration is to substantially build on the existing system of School Resource Officers and Class III Special Officers in our schools. More details will be shared in the future.

We will continue to maintain an increased police presence at all of our schools for the remainder of the year.  Best wishes for an enjoyable and relaxing Memorial Day weekend.

Sincerely,

Mark Toback, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
