Statement from Superintendent Dr. Vickie L. Cartwright regarding today's school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Dear Broward County Public Schools families, staff and community,

There are no words that begin to express the heartbreak we feel for the families of Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Our hearts are with them and their entire community as they cope with this senseless tragedy.

As a reminder, mental health professionals at our schools are available to support students and families in need of assistance. As we approach the end of the school year, our school District is committed to ensuring the safety of our students and staff by remaining vigilant and maintaining constant communication with our law enforcement partners.

School safety is our collective responsibility. As always, we encourage everyone in our community, if you see something, say something.

Thank you.
