This post is to inform you to be on the lookout for a letter that will be coming home with your child this week from the Southern Regional Police Department. The complete letter can be read by clicking the link below.
The police have developed a new program for Conestoga and Pequea Elementary Schools that involves assigning specific police officers to each classroom . Officers have always stopped at the schools and visited various classrooms, as well as eaten lunch with the students and even went out at recesses. But now the officers will stop by on a monthly basis an for a brief classroom meeting. The objective is to foster a positive and informative dialogue with the students on a variety of safety issues. Some of the topics will include internet safety, home safety, and outdoor safety.
Once the officers are assigned, you will receive a second letter with the name and contact information of that officer.
