D97 and safe gun storage | #schoolsaftey

Thanks for your recent article shedding light on the lack of action from District 97 in regard to secure firearm storage communication. As the leading killer of children, gun violence is an increasingly concerning public health issue and educating families on best practices for secure storage is a proven, effective tool to diminish its impact. As with all health education campaigns, finding the right medium for delivery is key.

Superintendent Ushma Shah claimed, “We are probably already sharing information in the best way possible.” I’d like to understand her meaning of “best” here. Or “sharing,” for that matter, because I’ve not seen D97 share anything on secure storage to date. If, as Supt. Shah claims, they are relying on partner agencies for communication, shame on them. Parents in D97 are already captive audiences for district-wide newsletters, school emails, texts, and more.

When D97 has deemed something critical enough to address, we get blasted with it. Take, for example, the policy on tree nuts: All D97 schools are nut-free zones. I saw this in a district newsletter, in a principal email, and heard it from each of my children’s teachers on Curriculum Night. And thank goodness! An estimated 0.5 to 1% percent of children have sometimes deadly nut allergies, thus we all go the inconvenient extra mile to find acceptable proteins. Worth it if it saves one kid, right?
