Message from our Superintendent

Dear Tulare Joint Union High School District Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to address our community about the recent situations of threats to schools throughout our nation and in our district. As many of you already know, the Parkland shooting was a heart-breaking incident where many innocent high school students lost their lives in a senseless act. The Parkland shooting has been followed by many copycat threats at many schools nationwide, and unfortunately several within our own district. I want to let our community know that the safety of our students and staff is top priority. These incidents serve as an opportunity for school staff and parents to have a discussion with students and re-enforce the importance of reporting concerning behavior and statements to district officials or law enforcement. We will continue to work closely with law enforcement, mental health professionals, parents, and others committed to providing a safe learning and working environment for our students and staff. All threats made to our schools will be taken seriously and will involve law enforcement.

Our school counselors and psychologists are available to speak with students who wish to do so. As a district, we are reviewing all of our safety procedures, having meetings with our local law enforcement, adding additional security, providing training to staff, and awareness to our students. 

We understand the community’s desire for information. However, both state and federal laws protect confidential information maintained by school districts concerning students. Thus, the district is not able to share details involving the students. 

The district encourages all individuals who may have additional information regarding this matter to immediately report it to the district and to the Tulare Police Department.

For your convenience, we have provided a printable version of this message below.

Thank you,

Tony Rodriguez
