Town Hall on Campus Safety 


McGaugh hosted a virtual PTA Meeting and Town Hall on Campus Safety on Jan. 19, 2022. Participants included Principal Dr. Gates, Seal Beach Police Chief Phil Gonshak, several officers from the SBPD and Dr. Jerry Friedman, Director of Safety and Student Services for the Los Alamitos Unified School District. Participants were able to learn about the measures being taken to ensure McGaugh is a safe and secure campus for students and staff. 

A recording of the roughly hour-long meeting can be found here.
