HIGLEY, Ariz. -- An East Valley school district is reacting to Friday's school shootings in Connecticut.

The Higley Unifed School District released this statement:

"Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the families of Newtown who lost loved ones in today's shooting," said Higley Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Denise Birdwell. "We wish schools faced no such circumstances, but tragedies cannot be anticipated. We recognize that situations like this happen and we must do our best to be prepared. Times like these give us pause, and we reflect on our security systems to assure our continued vigilance in protecting our students, staff and faculty."
