Dads Take Your Child to School Day

Dads Take Your Child to School Day

St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) will be celebrating Dads Take Your Child to School Day on Wednesday, September 26, 2018. Dads Take Your Child to School Day is a statewide initiative of the Florida Department of Education to encourage fathers and male role models to become involved in the education of their children as a means for increasing student achievement.  Fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers and other male role models are invited to take their children to school on September 26.

The Dads Take Your Child to School Day event is designed to highlight the significant role a child’s father or male role models can have in enhancing a child’s educational experience.

SLPS Continues To Enhance Safety and Security

Chief Brian Reuther of  the SLPS Security Department announced today that Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers banners will be placed in all K-8 and middle schools as a step toward expanding awareness of the Crime Stoppers program.  Last year, in partnership with the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office, the program began on high school campuses.

Safety is a priority for SLPS, and the District will remain vigilant in monitoring campuses and buses.  It is up to everyone to immediately report any concerns or suspicious activities directly to law enforcement or staff members.

Anonymous reporting is available through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-273-TIPS or by using the emergency alert button on the SLPS app.
