Hello, It is with a heavy heart that I send this communication regarding the school shooting at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School in St. Louis. Emotions run high when a horrific incident such as this transpires. We will continue to be diligent in our safety protocols at school to keep our students safe. Thank you for your continued efforts in helping to keep our school and community safe. We remind you that if you or your child sees or hears anything concerning, or out of the ordinary, please contact the school immediately. Thank you for your support. Dr. Beth Horner
