Emergency Community Council Meeting
January 14, 2016, 3:40 pm
Attending: Diane Hammer, Jody Knecht, Brooke Pendleton, Hilary Hales, Ellen Cox, Shellie Ashby (PTA)
We asked for recommendations for the city to consider. One of the dads living in the neighborhood, whose child walks to the Jr. High, works for a company who supplies safety equipment. He suggested the city consider the following:
We know that we can’t provide any hardware or physical properties to help with the safety of the children, but we can provide preventative safety education to help students be more aware of their responsibility to be alert to dangers. As a school, we will provide the following through a safety fair and direct instruction by teachers and by assemblies. United Parcel Service drivers will come and help with the safety fair, and we will work with our SRO to help provide resources to teachers, students and parents.
With the fall weather, we'd like to remind parents to dress their children in warm clothing and bring a jacket to school.
Breakfast $1.35 Lunch $1.85
Parents who feel that they may qualify for free or reduced priced meals need to fill out the Free/Reduced Lunch application before Sept 30, 2017. This form is only available online. Any school breakfast or lunch meals eaten before a free or reduced-price meal application is processed and approved will be charged the full price for an elementary school breakfast or lunch. Parents will be responsible to pay for these meals.
The Davis School District will keep parents informed of school emergencies and school closures due to weather. Information will be posted here as needed.
Parents also may get the most up-to-date information from the district's Twitter and Facebook accounts.
