As is always the case, we strive to ensure that our environment is safe for our students. Due to unrelated events that occurred in Del City earlier this morning, our administration took extraordinary security precautions in securing the building and increasing student supervision as they move about the campus.
We are also aware of a recent story on news 9 regarding the arrest of an employee of C2 Catering. Every employee of Destiny Christian School submits to background checks in order to be eligible to work on our campus. C2 Catering is also held to that same standard for each of their employees. In this instance, the police were made aware of new information regarding the individual, and on Tuesday, January 17th came to the school requesting to speak to administration. This was the first notification the school received of a possible concern. The individual was immediately arrested and will not return to campus. His employment with C2 Catering did not involve interaction with DCS students.
Our first priority is the safety of our students and we will always be diligent in fulfilling that responsibility.
