The evening will include an overview of district student safety topics by Superintendent Monroe. School counselors, building administrators, school resource officers, and community mental health providers will also be on hand to answer questions related to topics including:

  • Student mental health resources in schools
  • Community mental health supports
  • Families as important partners in keeping students & schools safe
  • Online safety 
  • Student cell phone use at school and at home

“As we hopefully move past the COVID pandemic, we are directing more emphasis and resources on other aspects of student health and safety,” said Superintendent Monroe.  “Our students deserve our undivided attention as they resume lives that were interrupted during such a critical phase of growth and maturity. We want to share with parents what we are doing as a school community to support their children.”

There will be an opportunity to submit questions during the presentation, however, parents and guardians are encouraged to submit questions ahead of the Nov. 1 Q & A. Use this Google Form to submit questions regarding student safety.

Students in grades 6-12 who have questions related to the topics listed above should relay those questions to a parent or guardian. A parent can submit their child’s question on behalf of the student. Students will not be asked to submit questions using the Google Form.

The event will not be livestreamed, however, it will be recorded for viewing at a later date.
