Traphagen Elementary School honored America’s veterans Friday as a prelude to the upcoming national holiday on November 11. The observance paid tribute to the patriotic heroism displayed by men and women who have served in the Navy, Air Force, Army, Marines, and Special Forces.
The Comprehensive Safety Plan for School Crisis is part of the Project SAVE Legislation and the Safe Schools Against Violence in Education Act, passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Pataki at the end of the 2000 Legislative session. The law is an outgrowth of four years of negotiations and an in-depth report by Lieutenant Governor Donoghue's Task Force on School Violence. The primary goal of Project SAVE is to stop school violence before it happens. Project SAVE requires every school in the State of New York to work with local law enforcement officials and members of the Community to develop a comprehensive Safety Plan that will limit the damaging effects of a violent incident. As part of the approval process, the District-Wide Safety Plan MUST be made available for public comment at least thirty (30) days prior to adoption by the Board of Education. It is anticipated the Board of Education will adopt the plan on December 10, 2019. Comments on the plan may be sent to email@example.com
