School’s Safety Day a suc­cess

The News Herald (Willoughby, OH) - - Opinion -

All Saints School re­cently had our first Safety Day.

The pur­pose of this day was to al­low our stu­dents, fac­ulty, and staff to fa­mil­iar­ize them­selves with the many agen­cies through­out North­east Ohio that keep them safe at home, at school, and in the com­mu­nity.

Stu­dents in­ter­acted with EMS of­fi­cials, fire­fight­ers, crime scene tech­ni­cians, po­lice of­fi­cers, sher­iff deputies, (in­clud­ing Teddy Trooper), the Coast Guard, SWAT mem­bers and fed­eral agents.

They saw how foot­prints and fin­ger­prints are help­ful in in­ves­ti­gat­ing a crime, how SWAT ro­bots are used to help in dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tions, the equip­ment that is car­ried on a fire truck and so much more.

It is im­por­tant for our stu­dents to have pos­i­tive in­ter­ac­tions with the peo­ple who help and pro­tect them.

I think the pro­fes­sion­als had al­most as much fun as our chil­dren.

We are most ap­pre­cia­tive and grate­ful to the fol­low­ing agen­cies.

One of the chil­dren summed up the day when he ex­claimed, “This is the best thing that’s ever hap­pened at school!” Terri Armelli Prin­ci­pal All Saints School of St. John Vian­ney Wick­liffe
