Godwin Eagle Express, May 27th

Hello Godwin Families,

I hope that you have had a good week!  Here is the school-wide calendar for next week.  

  • School Safety:  We have all been heavy-hearted, sad, and disturbed this week in the wake of the school shootings in Texas.  In 2018 and 2019, we held in-person community safety forums supported by the Godwin PTSO to discuss our school safety protocols, answer questions, and address concerns.  Although we will not be able to have a forum before the end of this school year, we will host one in the early fall.  Here are the answers to the questions and concerns that community members and students presented in 2018 and 2019; at the bottom of this document is a form for you to enter a question or present a concern.  You can also email or call me at any time.
  • Social Media:  This week, there were multiple social media posts made by students at Godwin that showed unsafe behaviors (substance use, horseplay, and minor vandalism) happening in Godwin student restrooms.  Be assured that our administrative team takes these types of behaviors seriously at all times.  We were able to address the students involved in these incidents and give them consequences.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact me.
    • We ask all adults in the building to check student restrooms on a regular basis.
    • We have staff on duty in the hallways near restrooms to monitor.
    • We work with our school security officer, our school resource officer, and our school administrators to address these matters and take appropriate action under the Henrico County Code of Conduct and the Code of Virginia.
    • We ask that our students and families report anything unsafe happening through anonymous alerts or directly to a staff member.
  • During the week of May 23-27 , there were 13 positive Covid-19 cases reported to Godwin.
  • Good luck to our spring athletic teams who continue in regional tournaments this week!
