GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2018

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2018                            

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

The Interra RedHawk Branch will be closed TODAY.  They will be open on Friday.

The Three C’s Memorial Scholarship is available in the guidance office.  You must have at least a 3.0 GPA and have completed six athletic seasons as an athlete, trainer, manager or cheerleader.

The Cass County Conservation Club scholarship is available in the guidance office.  You must be pursuing an area of study related to conservation or agriculture.

Due to testing this week, the Student Faculty Senate meeting will be moved back one week to Thursday, March 8th at 7:45 a.m. in the media center.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Indiana Pacers (NBA) president Kevin Pritchard was quoted in the Indianapolis Star as saying, “We take pictures (film) of our bench all the time.” Do you know why?  They use those pictures and film to monitor how players react when they are taken out of the game and most importantly how they are representing the Indiana Pacers while not on the court. This shows the importance of staying engaged in a positive way.  It also shows the importance of team over individual performance and having a good attitude on and off the court/field.  I’m sure Pritchard is always looking for the bench to be a positive influence, not one of negativity.  What would a picture of your bench look like?  Whether it’s basketball, football, softball or any other team sport, the bench tells the underlying story about the team itself. Whether you start or come off of the bench, know that spectators are watching the bench as well as those on the court and field!

GHS will host an open house on Monday, March 5th for 9th and 10th graders and their parents to learn more about IB.  It will be in the GHS library from 6:30-7:45 p.m.  Translation will be available.  If you have questions, please ask Mr. Nichols or Mrs. Collins.

We will leave promptly at 8:25 a.m., and will return during the 2nd session of SRT.  Permission slips are available in the guidance office and room 4010 – the teacher’s lounge under the bridge.  They must be returned to Mrs. Stamatovich in room 4010 by Friday, March 2nd.

Job Fair:  Are you looking for work?  Are you trying to get a job lined up for after graduation?  We can help!  On Wednesday, March 7th, we will be holding a multi-employer job fair in Whiteman Gym from 4:30-6:30 p.m.  All students, friends and family are welcome to attend!  This is a great opportunity to meet with employers who are actively hiring.  These are local employers from a variety of fields.  Don’t miss your chance to apply for positions for summer work or for employment after graduation!

Feb. 23, 2018 Press Release

Statement from Goshen Community Schools and Goshen Police Department

2/23/2018

This morning, school and police department officials became aware of statements of concern posted on a GHS student’s Facebook profile. In further investigating the situation, it was decided to have additional police presence at GHS today as a precaution. However, the investigation has shown that there were no credible threats to anyone. In keeping with our tradition of transparency, we wanted to make the community aware of this situation.

The tragic events that unfolded in Florida last week are difficult for many students to process and understand.  It is not uncommon for young people to express their anxiety in misguided or inappropriate ways, and Goshen authorities will continue to take any such expressions very seriously. While this threat was deemed not to be credible, the school district and law enforcement officials always work together to ensure the safety of all students and staff, and will continue to be diligent in our efforts to do so.

Thank you to the entire community for partnering with us for the safety and well-being of every Goshen resident.

GCS School Safety Update

Goshen Community Schools and other area school corporations are reviewing their safety and security plans, and are making those plans available to the public. GCS values our students and staff, and we have detailed plans in place to ensure the safety of everyone in our school buildings. Below is a review of GCS safety initiatives, with links to a video and websites with further information.

Philosophy: The GCS philosophy of crisis management and safety planning aligns with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Department of Homeland Security.

To view the Student Safety Protocol on the GCS website, click on the following link:  https://www.goshenschools.org/students/student-safety-protocol 

Click on this link to read a Season 1 Good of Goshen story about safety and security in Goshen schools: https://goodofgoshen.com/project/school-connectedness-increases-indiana-student-achievement/

Crisis Response: In the fall of 2014 we implemented the Standard Response Protocol and Reunification Method from the iloveuguys Foundation. All GCS classrooms have posters in English and Spanish explaining the Standard Response system and what the teacher and students should do in each type of crisis.

Standard Response Protocol:  http://iloveuguys.org/srp.html

Standard Reunification Method: http://iloveuguys.org/srm_v2.html

Safety Specialist: We have a trained Safety Specialist in all buildings in Goshen Community Schools. We meet 4-5 times a year to uniformly implement corporation-wide safety measures. Shawn Turner from the Goshen Police Department and our three School Resource Officers (SROs) participate in these meetings as well.  Several GCS representatives attend the Elkhart County School Safety Commission twice a year to share ideas and updates with area schools. All Safety Specialists participate in two days of state-sponsored training each year.

Tornado Shelter: Tornado Shelters have been designated in all of our buildings. Students no longer file into the hallways for Tornado drills, but instead they file into areas that are designated to be the safest areas during a tornado.

Entrances: All schools have a foyer where a secure entrance is located. The school secretary releases the lock to allow visitors to enter. Goshen High School and Goshen Middle School were the most recent schools to have the secure entrance system put in place.  Everyone enters all GCS buildings at the designated Welcome Center or Main Office.

Tip Line: Our Bullying and Safety Tip Line is a completely anonymous, toll-free tip line that anyone can access any time he/she has information about bullying or a possible crisis. Do your part to protect others, call (574)538-3200 and help stop potential problems!

District Reunification Plan: In January 2017, representatives of the Safety Specialists Committee met with the Goshen Police Department to begin the district reunification plan.  A large facility in Goshen was identified as the place that could be used if there is ever a need for district-wide reunification. Smaller facilities, closer to each individual school, were also identified in case there is a need for reunification at just one GCS school building. Roles and responsibilities were assigned, and an equipment list was made, including emergency kits for administrators to carry in their vehicles.  These items, along with more cameras, radios, vests, etc. were purchased with the 2017 Safety Grant.

Safety Grants:

2014 School Safety Grant is fully implemented with the purchase of cameras and technology to upgrade our system. Our matching funds contributed to Aphone updates and safety film at all of our entrances.

2015 School Safety Grant is fully implemented with the purchase of radios and tower repeaters that allow for clear communication and increase the distance covered. Our matching funds are being used to install fob readers to limit and automate our key system. This key system is in place at GHS and GMS.

2016 School Safety Grant has allowed us to purchase the Raptor Visitor Management System which automates the sign-in system. Visitors that come to our offices or classrooms will show their ID (Driver’s license or State ID), which will be scanned and will print out a picture ID/visitor pass. The Raptor system records all visitors, so we know who is in the building at all times.  This system is in place at all GCS school buildings.

2017 School Safety Grant GCS was awarded another matching grant of $50,000 from the State of Indiana and $50,000 from Goshen Community Schools. The purchases and distribution of funds are in progress for this school year.

In addition to the safety initiatives GCS already has in place, school leaders will meet with the Goshen Police Department and Goshen Fire Department next week, to review procedures and determine updates that need to happen based on this most recent school shooting. We continue to refine procedures to make safety and security the absolute best it can be for GCS students and staff.

If you have questions or concerns about safety at Goshen Community Schools, you may email Susan Stiffney at sstiffney@goshenschools.org or Steve Hope, Assistant Superintendent, at shope@goshenschools.org
