Additional words from our School City of Hobart School Resource Officers:
Parents and Guardians,
We thank you for your partnership in keeping our students safe. Many of these products are odorless. We encourage you to check through your students belongings/backpacks and talk with the students about these issues. Tell them what the late and great Larry Juzwicki always told me, “There is no safety in silence!”
