Disaster Plan

Dear?Editor,

I would like to commend Bridgeport School District for working with local law enforcement and the fire department in designing a disaster plan. It’s very unnerving when, as a parent, you receive a call that the school has been evacuated due to a threat of some kind; however, the plan that is in place worked flawlessly from my point of view. The level headedness of the faculty & staff kept things from getting out of control. Their calmness kept our children calm, which I greatly appreciate! My daughter’s biggest concern today? That she left her backpack at school during the evacuation! That is what she focused on because she felt her teachers were keeping her safe. So thank you for a job well done! Other districts should take note!
