    Notice to Our Community About Uvalde Texas

    May 25, 2022

    Dear Wappingers CSD Community,

    On May 24, 2022, we learned of another school shooting that has shocked our nation. We are deeply saddened by the events that occurred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde Texas, an event that has resulted in the deaths of 20 people. 

    While this tragic event occurred on the other side of our country, it resonates so close to home.  There are so many similarities to what transpired today to that which occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.  Unfortunately, school shootings have become all too common, but each time something like this happens we feel the same sense of sorrow, anger, and disbelief.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of today's heinous act of violence and our secondary schools will be holding a moment of silence tomorrow during their morning announcements.

    This event reinforces the need for us all to be vigilant, and to ensure that best practices and protocols are in place at our schools each and every day.  Please know that the safety and security of our students and staff remain our top priority.  We will be reviewing our current practices and protocols with our local law enforcement agencies, and with our security consultant to ensure that they are consistent with the current industry standards.  

    Please know that counseling staff will be available to meet with any students who are experiencing any form of duress or anxiety related to such acts of senseless violence. I would also encourage our families to contact their School Administration, or Guidance Department if they have any immediate concerns about their child’s safety at school.  

    We must continue to work collaboratively as a school community to ensure a safe school environment for everyone!


    Dr. Dwight Bonk
    Superintendent of Schools
