Dear ECMS I Families,
The horrific tragedy that took place in Uvalde, Texas is heartbreaking and I know it’s an event that has shaken our nation and community.
As the Principal of Environmental Charter Middle School, I want to reassure you that safety is our number one priority and as soon as your student(s) enter our campus they are secure and protected. Daily protocols include strictly designated entry points into each campus through the main office, where security and maintenance staff routinely check gates and doors to the outside to make sure they are locked. All guests and visitors are required to follow on-campus procedures including proper check-in and check-out at the office. Each classroom is equipped with “Lock Blok” systems allowing doors to have the capability to lock quickly and secure the room during an emergency.
At ECS, we also have a strong safety plan that is regularly evaluated. In addition to protocols and procedures specific to each school site, safety drills are conducted regularly for various emergencies, including earthquake, fire, shelter in place, and lockdown. Our Campus engineers and Facilities Director frequently review these logistics and also attend campus safety walks. Additionally, ECS maintains a strong relationship with the local police departments and city officials, creating another layer of safety mitigation.
As students may hear more details about the events that unfolded in Uvalde, they may have mixed emotions and be affected in different ways. Our staff will do everything they can to offer extra counseling to any student(s) who may need support during this time. If you feel your child could benefit from more resources, please let me know.
Student and staff safety is always our top priority. As this horrendous event is difficult to understand and leaves us with deep sadness, I want to remind you we are here for one another. Everyone in our close-knit community plays an important role in maintaining public safety, and we encourage families to engage in conversations about safety and well-being with their children.
We will continue to keep the community of Uvalde and the students, staff, and families of Robb Elementary School in our thoughts and prayers.

Your Homeless Liaison:
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act for Homeless Children and Youth entitles all homeless school-aged children to the same free and appropriate public education that is provided to non-homeless students. To that end, your school has adopted the following policy regarding the enrollment and education of homeless students.
A homeless student is defined as a person between the ages of two and eighteen who lacks a fixed, regular, and
adequate nighttime residence. It includes children and youths who:
Homeless status is determined in cooperation with the parent or guardian. In the case of unaccompanied youth,
status is determined by the School Liaison.
The School Liaison shall ensure that:
ECS shall immediately admit/enroll the student (subject to the school\’s capacity and pursuant to any
procedures stated in the charter), even if the student lacks records normally required for enrollment. Records
will immediately be requested from the previous school.
If the student needs to obtain immunizations or does not possess immunization or other medical records, the
Principal or designee shall refer the parent/guardian to the School Liaison. The School Liaison shall assist the
parent/guardian in obtaining the necessary immunizations or records for the student.
For any questions, or if you encounter any issues with a school-issued Chromebook or hotspot, please contact ECS HelpDesk at firstname.lastname@example.org with “ECMS-I Support” in the subject line.
