Meet & Greet B-C-S New SRO Officer Welch Scheduled For Tuesday, September 11th!

B-C-S will host a meet and greet for any parent or community member who would like to meet Officer Welch on Tuesday, September 11 at 5:00 PM at The Hub at Oak Harbor High School.

Having an SRO is part of Benton-Carroll-Salem's comprehensive approach to school safety. Officer Welch will help us address school violence with both prevention and intervention techniques. Having an SRO on a school campus can deter problem situations from arising and can enhance a school’s capacity to address its safety and security concerns. When problems do arise, SROs can intervene quickly to address the situation. SROs can contribute to safe school planning efforts and offer their schools a resource to turn to when emergencies occur. Ultimately, the presence of an SRO assists in making the school safer and more secure for students, teachers, and staff. The entire community benefits as well because learning is more likely to take place in such an environment.

We hope to see you on Tuesday (September 11th) at 5 PM to give a big welcome to Officer Welch!

Both meetings will be held at The Hub (formerly the Media Center) at Oak Harbor High School. The meetings will be hosted by Treasurer Cajon Keeton and Superintendent Guy Parmigian.
