Dear GES Families:

I’m writing to you today to inform you of some of the changes that are taking place at Graham Elementary to ensure the safety of our children. After meeting with families on December 18 and staff during scheduled staff meetings and seeking their input, the following plan will be implemented immediately. We are continuing discussion with administration, staff, law enforcement, and families as we develop a long term plan for safety.

During arrival in the morning, we are asking that families drop their children off at the side doors rather than walking them to class in an effort to limit access to the building.

Additionally, we will be increasing the number of safety drills we perform here at school. These drills will prepare students in the event of a real situation and ensure that they know procedures regardless of their location in the building. At no time will we conduct a live drill. When we have a drill, you will be informed to answer questions that your children may have.

If you have questions or suggestions, you may contact me at (937)663-4449 or

Yours in Education,

Chad Miller
