Safety Task Force Meeting Tuesday, April 1, 2014 6:30 p.m.
District Office Conference Room
This is a parent initiated task force organized to discuss safety issues for the Octorara Area School District with the purpose of providing input to the Board of Directors. All voices are welcome. The monthly discussion is facilitated by Dr. Newcome, Superintendent of Schools.
Parents or community members that would prefer to join the discussion via email may send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your comments will be collected and shared with the Board Directors prior to their next work session. All comments must be received by April 10, 2014 to be assured of being included in documentation to be reviewed by the Board of Directors.
The topic of safety is one that causes strong emotions. Please consider your tone in participating in either the Task Force Meeting or the email communications. People should feel comfortable sharing their opinion or point of view without insult for holding such opinions and views. Civil and respectful discourse is the model we should provide for our children – especially on a topic this important.
Editor’s Note: The primary topic of discussion will be the possibility of the School District acquiring armed security personnel.
