School Safety Announcement
Plato R-V Schools
On Friday, February 15th, the faculty/staff at Plato R-V Schools received information from Sgt. Tim Ceplina, Houston Police Department; Sheriff James Sigman and various members of the Texas County Sheriff’s Department and Missouri State Highway Patrol. Dr. Ben Yocom, Plato R-V Schools Superintendent states: “Having someone like Sgt. Ceplina and Sheriff Sigman visit Plato Schools and present their expertise on how we should handle violent situations will be very beneficial for us.”
The information will be specifically on “School Safety” and the “do’s and don’ts” during a violent situation. Sgt. Ceplina will give a presentation and all officers will participate in a “Question and Answer” session with the faculty and staff. The officers will then physically walk through the entire campus and provide an unofficial “Needs Assessment”. This will also familiarize the respective officers with the campus.
“The recent event in Connecticut has caused ALL of us to re-evaluate everything regarding School Safety”, Dr. Yocom stated further.
Dr. Yocom concluded, “Providing the safest environment is our highest priority; if students feel unsafe, they are less likely to learn and learning is why we are here!”
