Message from Superintendent Robert W. Runcie – Today’s Tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School This evening, our District is dealing with an unimaginable tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. There are no words to express the sorrow that we are all feeling. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, as well as the entire Marjory Stoneman Douglas community.
As our District continues to work with law enforcement – we are focusing on providing our students, families and employees with the support and resources needed to cope with this devastating situation. We have grief counselors and crisis teams ready to assist, and we will be providing details to all of our families and staff as we move forward. Dealing with this tragedy is going to take time – and we will be here for every student, every family and every staff member.
Our hearts are broken. Please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers.
Robert W. Runcie
Superintendent of Schools
