Marysville School Board expresses grief and gratitude

posted Nov 5, 2014, 3:42 PM by Web Admin   [ updated Nov 5, 2014, 3:42 PM ]

The Board of Directors of Marysville School District are walking beside you through the agony of the events of October 24. 

All of us at Marysville School District, including teachers, staff, students, parents and community members who volunteer or simply enjoy the sports, concerts, or joyful noises from our playgrounds, are faced with a situation too awful to imagine and for which no one is ever prepared.

First, our profound gratitude to the students and staff of Marysville-Pilchuck High School, the first responders, especially our Marysville Police Department, Marysville Fire Department, Snohomish County Sheriff Department, Mayor John Nehring and the City of Marysville, County leaders, the Tulalip Tribes and the support community which gathered around us since the tragic day. Together and individually, you responded heroically. Thank you. 

Second, our condolences and sympathy to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy, and all of those affected. Schools should be a safe and happy place for our children. Our time has failed to find a way to keep our schools safe from gun violence. Many of us know the families who have suffered overwhelming losses. Our hearts are broken with them. 

Third, as we begin this challenging journey, the school board directors of Marysville School District will do all we can to address the agony of this crisis for our students, teachers and parents. We cannot change what has happened, but we can choose the course we now take. We have asked all of our staff members in our elementary, middle and high schools to discuss the event in the most sensitive and age-appropriate way possible.  While we cannot shield our students from the distressing news of this event, we can work to provide them with accurate information and to convey that we will do all that is possible to keep them safe. We must continue to demonstrate to one another and the community that the real measure of our work is that our staff and students know how to love and care for one another.

Our commitment is to Engage, Inspire and Prepare our students for life. We have always understood that this vision is about much more than language or math skills, now we have no choice but to begin the journey one step at a time into our new future.  

 - Dr. Tom Albright, President and the Marysville School District Board of Directors

Students and Faculty Coming Together, Moving Forward

posted Oct 27, 2014, 9:55 PM by Web Admin   [ updated Oct 27, 2014, 9:55 PM ]

 

While classes at Marysville Pilchuck High School (MPHS) have been suspended for at least the next week, the rest of the district schools are in session. In the 21 schools that are open for class today, we are seeing very strong attendance numbers.

“We heard loud and clear from our students that they wanted to get back to school, be with their friends, grieve together and move forward,” said District Superintendent Dr. Becky Berg. “That said, each family will make a personal judgment about what their student needs to transition to our new normal.”

District-wide, 97% of the approximately 1,400 faculty, staff and administrators reported for school today. While the absentee number does not include MPHS employees, it illustrates the tremendous commitment of district employees to the students.

“I’m proud of our faculty and staff for coming to work and being there for the kids,” continued Berg. “It is a challenging time, but we will continue moving forward together.”

The Marysville School District schools will be honoring the students, families and staff affected by the tragic event with a moment of silence today at 10:39am. This will mark 72 hours from the horrific event.

There are grief counselors available and more information will be our website: www.msvl.k12.wa.us.
