October 20, 2016 Dear Parents/Guardians: Midland Park High School participated in a law enforcement activity today involving local and county officials and resources. These resources included the use of canine officers. This activity was a planned initiative of our school district and local law enforcement personnel. This cooperative and proactive initiative is aimed at maintaining a safe and secure school environment for all members of our school community. The activity that took place on Thursday, October 20, 2016 is part of a continuing and evolving plan, which includes educational activities, prevention activities and enforcement activities. The use of local and county police resources, including canine patrol, may be repeated at various times for the remainder of the school year and in the future. Today’s activities were cooperatively planned and implemented, so too will all future educational, preventative, and enforcement efforts. It is the intention of all facets of our school community – students, teachers, parents, law enforcement, and school district personnel – to maintain a safe, secure, and substance-free school environment. Our students, faculty, staff and community deserve no less. Our efforts in this area will continue as we strive to maintain an appropriate school environment. Should you have any questions or wish to provide pertinent information, please feel free to contact us. We hope that we will have your support in this important and timely activity. It is our goal in continuing these initiatives and to maintain a safe and substance-free school environment.
? Sincerely, Nicholas Capuano Principal
