TO OUR COMMUNITY, PARENTS, KIDS, AND FAMILIES: The horrific tragedy that occurred at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has impacted our entire community ...and beyond. There were many heroic stories from students to teachers and first responders.
As we all begin to process this event and cope with our grief, we know it will not be easy. Talk to your kids. Talk to your parents. Talk to your teachers and school counselors -- and know that HPD is here for you. Keeping our students safe is a priority. Although we have not received any threats in Hollywood, we have taken precautionary measures and will have additional officers patrolling Hollywood schools, in addition to our school resource officers.
Our school resource officers are trained and prepared for critical incidents like this. But we need your eyes and ears as well. If you think (even a slight feeling) that something is not right, let your school resource officer know. Your SRO is here for you. Don't ever hesitate to ask us questions or talk to us. We will always listen.
Students! Showcase your talent and spirit with a little friendly competition and maybe win a prize!!!
Attention Students: Talented 10th Poetry Slam Competition. Let your voices be heard and maybe win a prize!
