    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    The Solana Beach School District Board of Education held a Special Meeting today to ensure that additional security enhancements at our schools are implemented as soon as possible. At today’s meeting the Board took the following actions:


    ·      Ratification of a contract to employ one security guard at Skyline School through April 30, 2015, or until completion of site fencing enhancements.


    ·      Ratification of a contract with Play it Safe for student assemblies at all sites as well as two parent presentations. The assemblies are designed to teach children the importance of awareness, setting appropriate boundaries, recognizing inappropriate behavior, and how to trust their instincts when someone or something doesn’t feel right.


    ·      Award of bid and approval of a contract to provide installation of additional or improved fencing at Skyline, Solana Highlands, Solana Ranch, and Solana Vista schools.


    ·      Approval to go to bid for a districtwide multi-camera video surveillance system with the intent to install security cameras at all sites.


    These actions by the Board, in conjunction with changes made to procedures throughout the District, will greatly support our continued focus on student safety.


    I would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the San Diego/Solana Beach Sheriff’s Department for their work, care, and attention to our community. Captain Theresa Adams-Hydar was diligent in her effort to keep the District fully apprised during the investigation and ensure deputy presence at all area schools during the school day to provide an additional sense of security for our families. We are grateful for the Department’s comprehensive support and care for our community.




    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.

    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    Today, the Sheriff’s Department arrested a suspect in connection with the attempted child abduction at Skyline School on March 23. The Sheriff’s Department news release regarding the arrest can be found here: http://www.sdsheriff.net/newsroom/links/20150402a.pdf


    While it is some comfort to know that a suspect is in custody, we recognize that this incident has left members of our community unsettled. Their sense of security has been shaken, and their concern for the well being of our students has been elevated. At the same time, some members of our community may feel that additional safety measures are no longer necessary.


    We want to assure families that the safety of our students continues to be the District’s primary concern. Over the past two weeks, we have revisited our campus security procedures and the means by which we ensure student safety. The changes that have been made were carefully considered, and the plans will not be altered as a result of the arrest. We recognize these safety measures are not always convenient for adults. We appreciate the support we have received from the community as we maintain our focus on students.


    Next week, over Spring Recess, I hope you take time to rest, relax, spend time with family and friends, and recognize the things for which you are grateful.


    We look forward to seeing students return on Monday, April 13 when school resumes.


    Most Sincerely,


    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
