Safety Summits Save the Date

Keeping students and staff members safe is the number one priority of Toledo Public Schools, so a number of safety summits are being

held in the month of September so parents, guardians and community members can learn about important safety-related initiatives.

A Safety Summit will be held in each of the district's six learning communities.

The initial presentation will be done by Diana Ruiz-Krause, the chief of the TPS Department of Public Safety, and other TPS administrators, and then there will be breakout sessions on such topics as A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate); bully prevention; strategies for keeping kids safe and school bus safety.

The sessions are being held at the six traditional high schools so parents and guardians can go to the meeting in their learning community;

however, parents and guardians are invited to attend whatever session works best for their schedules. All summits will run from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

As of August 1, Toledo Public Schools is a tobacco-free school district.

The Board of Education approved a resolution in February declaring the district tobacco-free. That means no staff member, student or volunteer is permitted to smoke, inhale, dip or chew tobacco at any time, including non-school hours in any building, facility or vehicle owned, leased, rented or chartered by the District or on school grounds, athletic facilities or parking lots.

The use of tobacco at any athletic event and/or after school activity will also be prohibited.

For the purpose of this policy, “tobacco” includes any lighted or unlighted cigarette, cigar, pipe, bidi, clove cigarette, and any other smoking product, and spit tobacco, also known as smokeless, dip, chew and snuff, in any form.

For the purpose of this policy, electronic cigarettes are considered “tobacco.”

Throughout the school year, information on how to quit smoking or using tobacco will be provided to staff, students, volunteers and parents.
