Message from GUSD Superintendent

Dear Glendale Unified Students, Families, Staff, and Community Members,

We are deeply upset to hear of yet another school shooting on a high school campus today, this time at Saugus High School in nearby Santa Clarita. We do not yet have all of the details as this is an ongoing incident, but we will continue to monitor the situation closely throughout the day.

A school shooting affects all of us, especially when it occurs so close to home. I want to assure you that student and staff safety and wellbeing is our top priority. We are being especially mindful of student and adult needs today, and we have counseling support available should our students or staff need someone to talk to.

We are one Glendale Unified community and we must work together to create a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, families, and community members. Please take care of one another and report any concerns to your school or our district office.



Vivian Ekchian, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
