The Children of Our Community and School Safety
The recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, changed the thinking about student safety forever. A lone gunman had no real link to the school. He got into a facility with good security measures in place. His victims were young and randomly selected. It causes us to say “What if?”
School people worry about parents locked in custody battles, former employees looking for revenge, or a student trying to right an alleged wrong. Sandy Hook was truly senseless violence.
Nationally, debates about guns and mental health continue. Locally, we have to deal with student safety issues on two levels. One is checking our present safety procedures and making certain that they are as effective as possible. The other issue is discussing any new measures to implement in such a way that it does not bring greater anxiety to children, their parents, and our community.
Our future plans are not finalized yet. The state and federal governments are considering funding toward more school resource officers. We are monitoring those discussions. Wawasee is considering such things placing barriers to keep vehicles away from our exterior doors, expanding our security camera and lighting systems, and holding more training with law enforcement, emergency personnel, and school staff members.
Our security at Wawasee was good before the senseless acts in Connecticut. It’s better now.

The Wawasee Community Schools are located in the northern part of Kosciusko County. The school district is comprised of the communities of Milford, North Webster, and Syracuse, Indiana. The citizenry live, work, and play around five large lakes; Dewart, Webster, Tippecanoe, Syracuse, and Wawasee. Three thousand five hundred students find their way to school each day by bus or private vehicle to take advantage of the many excellent educational programs offered by dedicated school personnel. Core subjects, Gifted/Talented, Home Study, Summer School, Vocational Placement, Special Needs Instruction, etc. meet the needs of all of the students in the corporation. Also, after school activities which include clubs, organizations, and athletics help keep students very busy and productive. Three elementary schools are located in Milford, North Webster and Syracuse and each provides a solid educational beginning for students. The middle schools, containing grades 6-8, continue student progress before the final four years at Wawasee High School. All three distinctly different levels of educational opportunities, elementary, middle school, and high school, provide each student a strong foundation for adulthood. We are proud of our school community and especially of our students and faculty who give their time and talents to make educational life in the Wawasee Community School Corporation an enjoyable experience.
