Once again it is hard to believe we are approaching the end of another school year. As we know, these are busy days with a flurry of activity. At this time of the year there are several high profile events (prom night, end of the year recognitions, commencement, etc.) that require extra planning. Remember to take the time to prepare for emergencies at these events.
This summer they are several opportunities to participate in that focus on school safety and preparedness. These include:
Kansas State Pupil Transportation Association (KSPTA) will hold their annual conference and safety symposium in Hutchinson, KS on June 20 at the Ramada Hotel
The Kansas Juvenile Officers Association will hold their annual conference from July 7-12 at the Holiday Inn conference Center in Lawrence.
The Kansas School Nurses Association will hold its summer conference in Wichita from July 15-18. The theme for the conference is the “The More Things Change, the More we Grow”.
The 6th annual Safe, Healthy and Prepared Schools Conference will be held on September 16 & 17 in Manhattan. This is a week earlier than past years.
FEMA offers on line, independent study courses, that provide helpful information for school safety and preparedness. These classes are easy to find at www.training.fema.gov/is
Some suggested classes to consider are:
IS-100.SCa "Introduction to the Incident Command System for Schools"
IS-700A “National Incident Management System, An Introduction"
IS-120.a "An Introduction to Exercises"
IS-546 "Continuity of Operations (COOP) Awareness Course"
We wish you calmness and safety as you close out the school year. We trust you will have some quality time away from your responsibilities this summer.
Dr. Bob Hull, KC-SPS Director
