In light of the May 18 shooting in front of the Garfield Teen Life Center, the PTSA is committed to working with Principal Hart and others to develop more robust safety systems for the school campus. This week, Dr. Hart announced a Community Safety meeting via an email to families:
Garfield High School is hosting a Community Safety Meeting on Monday, June 5, 2023, from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm in the Commons. The goal of the meeting is to identify implementable solutions/strategies to address safety concerns on campus after school hours.
All Garfield families, students, and staff members are invited to attend. This will be a solutions-oriented meeting. While we recognize the importance of engaging the wider Seattle community, including our neighbors in the Central District, this meeting is specially planned to engage our Garfield community around campus safety. A separate meeting is being scheduled to engage the wider Seattle and Central District communities.
A final agenda will be sent in advance of the meeting. I look forward to having a productive meeting. I hope to see you there.
