Commitment to Safety

The horrific event at The Covenant School last Monday is heavy on all of our hearts. Many of you have reached out to ask questions, share your gratitude, offer help, and to simply connect.

We appreciate all of your thoughts, questions, and ideas. In order to centralize our efforts, please email pto.spark@gmail.com. Ms. Goetz will work closely with the PTO board to share information and determine actionable next steps to continue to keep Sylvan Park students and staff as safe as possible.

That said, the PTO event on May 4th at 6 p.m. will be focused on safety. Again, please email pto.spark@gmail.com with any comments, ideas and/or questions so that we can design an event that is beneficial and productive.
