Southside High School will operate on a normal schedule on Monday, May 16. There will be additional psychologists and social workers trained in handling trauma available to assist school guidance counselors with students and staff members who need help processing the events of Friday. There will also be a more prominent law enforcement presence and additional school district administrators on campus. I want to make clear that this is purely to reassure students, faculty and the community that the school is safe. There is no ongoing threat. Supplemental law enforcement officers will be at Southside through the end of the school year to assist the SRO.
