month, we had a visitor in Global/ Leadership class, Deputy Kay! The
Deputy’s purpose was to teach our students how important it is to be
Our students discussed 4 important topics; bicycle/car safety, stranger danger, bullying and internet safety.The students asked many
questions and told some amazing stories! Deputy Kay wanted to reach out
to the students to create a bond, and forage new friendships. It’s
important that the student see the Sheriff Department
as a friend that they can turn to in a time of need.
first topic was bicycle safety. She showed our students the proper way
to wear a bicycle helmet and how to check to make sure their bike is
safe. She also talked about how to signal
their turns to surrounding traffic while riding.
second topic was stranger danger. Deputy Kay discussed with our
students that when someone they don’t know approaches them in a park or
their neighborhood, they should say “no” and go
tell their parents immediately. She also discussed what to do when a
stranger calls your home, or rings your doorbell. It is always best to
go get a parent to talk to someone you don’t know.
third topic was internet safety. The Deputy discussed how we should
never give personal information out to anyone on the internet, and how it
is important that their parents know what
sites they are on.
final topic was bullying. She demonstrated what to say and how to
behave when a bully is involved. Find an adult that you trust and let
them know that someone is being a bully. Deputy
Kay reminded us that all students need to be proactive when it comes
bullying. All of our students are smart and talented. No one should be
able to make them feel any different.
Kay is the Resource Officer for Sun Valley Elementary, Indian Trail
Elementary, and Sun Valley Middle. She is there to guide the students in
a positive direction.
We want to thank Deputy Kay for spending time with us, and for keeping our community safe!
