Dear Students and Families,

 

It has been determined that the genesis for the recent lockdown at THS was a game called Assassins.  It is my understanding that students enter into a contest with the purpose of finding creative ways to “kill” other players in the game.  This could take the form of a picture of a bomb placed on their car or pointing a toy firearm at another player.  The last person remaining alive is deemed to be the winner of the game.

 

Technically, Assassins doesn’t violate school district discipline code providing the activities occur outside of school hours and more than 1000 feet from school district property.  That being said, today’s situation demonstrates how the school environment can be adversely affected by what students probably consider an innocent pastime.  Students can be subject to school discipline for possession of dangerous objects, bullying or threats against students or personnel.  The definition of a “dangerous object” includes toys that resemble knives, guns or explosive devices.  The school district will be treating any incident relating to threats against students or possession of dangerous objects very seriously even if they stem from participation in a “game.”  Additionally, when students were playing Assassins last year, local law enforcement responded to several complaints from community members concerned that students were dangerously running in and out of traffic or lurking in bushes near homes.  Participation in the Assassins game could result in the involvement of law enforcement and any number of criminal violations.

 

I implore you to discuss all the implications of Assassins and consider not participating in a game that has as its purpose the “killing” of classmates and friends.  This seems incredibly insensitive and damaging given the recent trend of school shootings and increased violence across our nation.  I understand and support first and second amendment rights guaranteed in our Constitution but believe that we can find better ways to spend our personal time than acting as Assassins.  Your support in creating a safe school climate that allows our students to devote their full attention to career and college readiness is greatly appreciated.

 

Sincerely,

Joe Koski, Ed.D.

Superintendent

I want to take a moment to thank the community for their patience as we continue to improve our campuses with new construction and modernization projects.  Traffic the last couple of weeks was particularly difficult on and near Templeton High School.  On numerous days, heavy equipment trucks and cranes were delivering and placing new modular classrooms increasing the already difficult drop-off and pick-up procedures.  I am happy to report that this stage of the project is completed.  You should see traffic improve a bit for the rest of December.  

 

The next stage of improvement will be noticed when the solar canopies are completed and on-line.  This will allow more students to park in the lot and should reduce roadside parking in front of THS.  Also, the pedestrian traffic will be routed south of the drop-off loop, reducing much of the congestion related to cars having to wait while students cross Main Street.  I will provide further updates later in the year as a tentative project completion date is determined.  

 

Please have a restful and safe holiday season.
