A message from Association President Ben Valdepeña:

“My heart goes out to the victims and families of this morning’s shooting in San Bernardino. We grieve alongside the North Park Elementary School community for the teacher and the student who were killed, and wish the student who was hospitalized a complete and quick recovery. From what I understand, there were two classified employees in the classroom at the time of the shooting. They were not harmed and were credited with doing an extraordinary job. I want to thank them for their courage. I also want to thank all the other classified employees who cared for and comforted the students during this heartbreaking ordeal, as well as those who helped evacuate the students quickly and safely. ”
