JCPS letter to parents, guardians of Brandeis students

January 30, 2014

Dear Brandeis Parents and Guardians:

This letter is to inform you of a situation that's occurring in our school community. We want to make sure that you have accurate information and to dispel any rumors you may have heard about the incident.

Tonight, WAVE 3 News will be running a story about a house across the street from Brandeis Elementary where they believe frequent drug activity occurs. Metro Police will be investigating the situation. We want you to know that Metro Police regularly talk with our staff about what's happening in our neighborhood if they believe it could in any way impact our operations.  

Please be assured that the safety and well-being of your child(ren) is always foremost in everything we do. Our goal is to keep our nurturing school environment a place where all students learn at high levels and have fun. We have great confidence in our emergency procedures and safety plans in the event that they are ever needed.

The safety of our students is a team effort. So, we ask you to:

  • Remind your student to seek out an adult that he/she knows or a staff member if he/she believes there is any danger.
  • Talk to your student about why he/she should not talk to strangers.
  • Let staff know of any potential dangerous situations around our community that could impact student safety.

If you have any further questions concerning this incident, please do not hesitate to call us at 485-8214. Thank you for your support and assistance in keeping our school safe for everyone.

Sincerely,

Emil Salman, Interim Principal 

Sam Cowan, Assistant Principal
