Burbank School Superintendent Comments on Florida School Shooting

By On February 15, 2018

Following is a statement from Burbank Unified School Superintendent Matt Hill regarding the Florida school shooting that occurred Feb. 14, 2018

In one of the deadliest shootings in modern U.S. history, 17 children and adults were gunned down yesterday at a high school in Florida. This senseless and tragic event, and the other school shootings that have occurred this year, have shaken all of us to our core. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. At this point in time, however, words of condolence seem hollow. Many of us feel the frustration of what seems to be a hopeless epidemic of violence in our nation. This is not a partisan political issue. Now more than ever, we need to unite together to find solutions that will prevent these types of tragedies.
