District holding community safety forum Monday
A community safety forum will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at the Windsor High School fireside room, 1100 Main St., to discuss current safety and security precautions in the Windsor-Severance Re-4 School District, as well as hear suggestions on how to increase security and safety throughout the school district.
"Personally, I think we need to come together as a community to talk about it, talk about prevention and protection strategies, and get community input on that," Re-4 superintendent Karen Trusler said. "It's a critical time to get together as a community to see what the community feels on how we can make sure that safety and security are up front for our kids, from preschool to high school."
Trusler said all community members are invited.
"We want to open up and listen to questions and suggestions," Trusler said. "I have had a father call and say, 'What about if we had an expanded Watch D.O.G.S. program where we have more parents' visibility, particularly at middle school and high school?' That's something we'll discuss as well."
For more information, call the school district at (970) 686-8000.
