The Fowlerville Community School district will hold a parent meeting Thursday to discuss safety policies and protocols, in light of recent violent acts and threats.

The forum will be held at 7pm in the Fowlerville Junior High School auditorium. Superintendent Wayne Roedel says a district parent group recently expressed a desire to share their thoughts on gun violence and how the district responds to crisis.

The meeting comes just two weeks after the Florida high school shooting that left 17 students and teachers dead. Since then, there have been threats made at South Lyon and Milford High School, and the Stockbridge Junior/Senior High School.

Roedel says the purpose of the "Parent Conversation" is to provide an avenue and forum for them to share their thoughts, ask questions and receive answers. Roedel hopes to reassure community members that are concerned about student safety.

The session will be moderated by Roedel, Village of Fowlerville Police Chief John Tyler and Sgt. Jeff Soli, the school liaison officer. Questions and comments from the meeting will be published for anyone who is unable to attend. (DK)
