April 3 Student Safety

Dear families, 

In recent weeks, a social media post from the United Kingdom began promoting April 3 as “Harm a Muslim” Day. Social media can spread messages quickly, and some of SPS students are talking about this. While this activity seems to be focused in Europe, in an abundance of caution, there will be increased security at schools. If you hear of something, please contact the district Safety & Security office at 206-252-0510 or call 911 if it is an emergency. As a school system, we will do everything  we can to make sure our students are safe while in our care. Anyone who feels unsafe or targeted for any reason should immediately contact a trusted adult. Harassment of any kind is not, and will not, be tolerated in Seattle Public Schools.

Thank you.
