GLCPS Executive Director's Addresses News of Tennessee School Shooting

As our students left school yesterday, it’s very possible that they learned about the shooting. Please know that, if your child has questions or concerns, our counselors are ready to assist. We encourage students to speak with a counselor or another trusted adult if they need any help processing the news.

Additionally, we want to assure you that the safety of our students is our top priority. We are constantly reviewing our security measures to ensure that we are doing everything we can to protect our students and staff. We also urge everyone to speak up if they see or hear anything that could represent a potential threat to school safety.

Throughout this week, our focus will be on the mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing of our students. Please join us in keeping the Nashville community in our thoughts at this time. Thank you for your support.
