School Safety

The unspeakable horror that occurred Wednesday in the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, is beyond comprehension or words.  Our hearts go out to the families and students in Parkland, and it is a tragedy that will resonate with us for years to come.  We send our deepest condolences to the students, families, and community of Parkland.

Please know that the Morris-Union Jointure Commission emphasizes the safety and security of its students and staff as its number one priority.  We work closely with the local police departments and train our administrators, teachers, and students through routine and recurrent drills and implementation of protocols.  Our buildings are secured and we continue to heighten our security measures.
