Dear Brandon School District Community,
It is with a saddened heart that we learned about the tragic events that unfolded in our neighboring Oxford High School yesterday. People in the Brandon Community have loved ones, siblings, friends, and other family members who are students or staff members in Oxford. This tragedy has affected all of us deeply. As we return to school tomorrow, Thursday, December 2, 2021, please join Brandon Schools in keeping all of the families of the victims and the Oxford Community in your thoughts as they grieve this loss. Please be aware that if you or any Brandon student needs help through this time our mental health professionals are available. Please share this information with those who may need the support of these professionals.
Student safety continues to be our top priority. We currently have our building security protocols in place including a security guard on site everyday in every building as well as our Oakland County Police School Liaison. We will also have additional security supports in our district beginning tomorrow, Thursday, December 2nd.
Attached are resources to support you while you work through this tragedy. These resources can help you to know how to talk with your child/student regarding loss and violence. With much sadness,
Brandon School District Administration and Crisis Team
