We are all once again stunned and filled with grief at the senseless loss of life in Uvalde, Texas. I know we all stand united with the families who are suffering this morning.
The lives of the children of our community and the teachers and administrators charged with their education are precious to all of us. I want to reassure you that their safety and the safety of all those who live and work here remains our highest priority.
With the measures we took after the Sandy Hook tragedy and the stepped up police presence and other measures we have instituted today, we will continue to protect our students and staff in the Trumbull Public Schools.
It is my hope that we finally, as a united Nation with a common goal, take real steps to see that yesterday’s tragedy never happens again.
