Open Letter from Mayor Tim Meerbott
Violence in Our Schools
April 11, 2019
Dear Friends, Family and Neighbors,
Our Town staff has been in continuous communication with Miami-Dade County Public Schools District Officials regarding the April 9 fight and they have assured the Town that this was an isolated incident and not a reflection of the student population at Cutler Bay Middle School.
The School District is dealing directly with both students involved in the fight, along with their parents, for disciplinary action and to ensure this situation does not repeat itself. I will also be meeting with Miami-Dade County Public Schools' Officials on Friday, April 12, where we will discuss how to continue improving safety policies and procedures in all of our Town schools and prevent situations like this one from happening again.
The safety of our students is a top priority. Town Council, staff and I remain committed to working with our school system to ensure that our students, and their parents, feel safe the moment they step in school.
