Thank you to all who were able to attend the school safety discussions hosted by the PTA. The Administration and our local law enforcement officers were there to answer any questions brought up by concerned parents, many of whom were understandably shaken by the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. One issue raised was the importance of mental health support for our children as a prevention tool. We have excellent mental health professionals who work in our district and they work tirelessly to ensure that our kids are happy, healthy and safe. Given the difference we have seen these professionals make in our children's lives, some wondered aloud whether we should advocate for more of them!
So, to that end, please consider emailing our Putnam County officials to demand more financial support for mental health services in the Haldane School District!
