Graded's Response to the Tragedy in Santa Maria
On Tuesday of this week a concerned parent wrote to ask if the school planned to address the recent tragedy in Santa Maria. He also offered ideas and resources he thought would empower Graded students to stay safe in any crowded venue. Within a few hours the high school leadership team decided to take action and contacted two members of our faculty - Mr. Amaral Cunha and Mr. Wayne Shackleford - and asked them to put together an information video highlighting best practices in an emergency. Twenty four hours later Amaral and Shack had filmed, edited and produced a three-minute clip that we hope will give our students information that will increase awareness on how to avoid dangerous locations and how to react if caught in an emergency situation. Thank you Shack and Amaral for your work.
