A nationwide school walkout is planned for Wednesday March 14, 2018, as both a protest in favor of stronger gun laws and in memory of the 17 students and faculty member victims of the horrific school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
After a security scare at Hopewell Valley Central High School, all events will take place inside the school building and no visitors without appointment may enter the school at that time, according to the Hopewell Valley Regional School District (HVRSD) Police will be on site at Timberlane Middle School and Central High School to provide additional safety.
In additional to increased efforts for Wednesday, HVRSD Superintendent Dr. Tom Smith notified the school community today of additional increased security policies.
HVRSD has also opened a district-wide anonymous tip line for students and parents to share any concerns that may impact the safety of our students: 609-737-4000 x8487 (TIPS). Concerns may also be shared via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
