POTSDAM — The Potsdam Central PTSA will sponsor a community forum on school safety Monday, Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the A.A. Kingston Middle School L.G.I.R.

At this meeting, the school administration will provide information about district and building-level school safety plans, discuss safety drills, and share details about security systems already in place.

Discussion will also take place about the steps PCS plans to take to make sure students receive the help and support they need. Finally, school officials will talk about the role of a School Resource Officer (SRO), based on information from other schools and on the experiences of some members of our administrative team.

There will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions and provide feedback to the Board of Education and administration.

The presentation will be shared via email and the school will put together a question and answer document on the School Resource Officer proposal after the meeting so that parents who aren’t able to attend the meeting can be informed.
