Thank you for a great day of learning at Holland Public Schools. We appreciate everyone's due diligence in obtaining factual information from the district vs. online social media outlets not connected with actual events. Our attendance today averaged over 94% consistent with typical school day operations. Many thanks again to all of our first resopnders for taking additional measures today to supplement our team efforts.

February 22, 2018 Update 6:00 a.m.

At approximately 10:30 p.m. Wednesday evening, I received notification that information was circulating on social media that students should not attend school on Thursday 2/22/18 due to a safety threat. This information was circulating among some secondary students. I am most appreciative for all of the families who contacted staff and the Holland Police Department with this safety concern.

Working very closely throughout the night with HPD Detectives, road patrol, the Chief of Police and Captains on duty, we were able to discredit any safety concern related to these specific posts and able to identify their source earlier this morning. Thank you to all of the additional personnel who assited in coming in througout the night to quickly investigate this matter. 

We will be having school on Thursday, February 22 as planned. To provide an extra level of safety and support, additional police presence will be on site today at HHS and patrolling througout our school neighborhoods. We will continue to take any mention of concern very seriously that may compromise the safety of our schools for our children.

School Operations: 

 School is operating on a normal schedule today.

Since the tradegy of Columbine in 1999, HPS has been implementing additional security measures across our school district. The "Build 21" bond campaign in 2010 allowed us to address many enhanced features across the district to support safety including campus access, technology, and use of space. Our efforts are ongoing as we assess, implement and practice safety protocols on a regular basis. We focus on prevention, response, infrastructure, training, relationships and collaboration. With the support of our First Responders, the Department of Public Safety in the City of Holland and the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department, we assess, practice and test our practices on a regular basis. We also take the report of any safety threat very seriously and mobilize our teams with respect to our emergency response procedures. Safey must be our number one priority. Building a preventative culture based upon relationships is critical. We must also notice, invite, challenge and empower individuals who recognize a need to support others and/or to report anything that is not safe in our school community. We believe, that we can not keep our schools safe without the help of our entire community. Thank you for helping us in this endeavor.
