Goshen Community Schools uses social media as a means to communicate information about school events, delays or closings, student and staff achievements, and other noteworthy items to parents, students, and interested community members.
Today, social media was used to communicate an evacuation at Goshen High School (See GHS/GPD Press Release). We hope the community will understand that our choice to use social media to communicate events was made so that parents would know their children were safe. Student safety is always our top priority. The administrators charged with the safety of GHS were focused solely on the safe evacuation of students and staff, and the cooperative work with the police and fire departments. Other GCS staff members, not directly involved, used social media to attempt to keep parents and community members informed of events at GHS. In situations like today, parents will be notified as soon as possible. However, the first priority will continue to be securing the safety of those in our buildings.
As supporters and members of our GCS community, we invite you to follow Goshen Community Schools: On Twitter @GoshenSchools or like us on Facebook, Goshen Community Schools.
