April 21 School Safety Summit for parents, students

Seguin ISD is hosting a School Safety Summit on April 21 to inform families about the district’s safety practices and local resources currently available within the community.


The event, scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon, will be held at Seguin High School. Kirsten Legore, Seguin ISD executive director of student services, organized the event following recent events in Parkland Florida and Las Vegas.


“What started out as as simple event has grown into a sizable conference. The outpouring of support from local organizations has been tremendous. It goes to show that safety measures, especially for our children, and the resources available to our families in Seguin are of tremendous interest, she said.


“We are excited that Lisa and Greg Crane, the co-founders of the A.L.I.C.E. Active Shooter Training program, have pledged to serve as keynote speakers for the summit. Additionally, Bluebonnet Trails Community Services, Communities in Schools, Guadalupe County Children’s Advocacy Center, Guadalupe County Juvenile Services, Guadalupe Valley Family Violence Shelter and Seguin Police Department will be in attendance and provide informative presentations on their programs,” she said.


Several topics will be addressed including mental health, safety and awareness, school safety and security.


“Our goal is to inform our families so that they are armed with knowledge on Seguin ISD campus safety procedures and resources available throughout the community. We encourage our stakeholders to be a part of this summit,” she said.


Free childcare will be provided so that parents can attend the conference sessions.
