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.
