Last week’s tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary inevitably leads us to consider whether we are doing everything we can to prevent such an event in our local schools.

Many of you are likely already conducting security assessments and exploring your options, but we invite you to come together with other NYC day schools and yeshivot to collectively learn from the experts how to be prepared and how to respond in such an event. Lunch will be served.


  • Prevention: Upgrading your physical security and access policies to deter attacks
  • Active Shooter Responses and Recommendations (NYPD SHIELD)
  • Creating a customized response plan that suits your building, your culture and your people

Shooter attacks are dynamic events that defy cookie-cutter approaches to “best practices”. However, this workshop will offer recommendations that can mitigate the risks of an attack.

For security purposes reservations are required. Click here to reserve for this important workshop or go to ( For further information email David Pollock at or Darcy Hirsh at
