FEATURED THIS WEEK
Fencing Tournament at East Valley Community Center
The City and the San Diego Fencing Center hosted the National Super Youth Circuit Fencing Tournament at the East Valley Community Center last week. This tournament was held for children between the ages of 10 and 14 and drew a crowd of over 600 participants and their families to Escondido and the surrounding area. This was the second fencing tournament the EVCC has hosted and the San Diego Fencing Center is already working with staff to organize another tournament later this year.
Escondido Police and School Officials for School Safety
In the wake of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Escondido police and school officials announced a collaborative effort to ensure the safety of Escondido campuses. This includes public, private, and faith based schools. Virtually every aspect of school safety is being re-evaluated. This includes physical site security measures (fencing, gates, doors, and controlled access points), training, adding a School Resource Officer, and encouraging the reporting of suspicious activity.
