We are hosting an open forum about school safety on August 6th from 6:00-7:30pm in the Sanctuary. Topics that will be covered are:
1. Kids being home by themselves, what to be aware of when walking home or getting off of the bus, and ideas of what to do once they arrive home; AND, how parents may deal with the stress and fear of sending their children off to school and worrying about a school shooting, and how to talk to their children about their fears of going to school and there being a school shooting;
2. The warning signs kids can look for in their friends and what parents may look for in their children, who may potentially turn violent;
3. How to have a successful and safe school year
4. A question and answer session
We hope this event will spark discussion that can positively influence our community and help bring change to this ever growing societal issue.
