The Kentucky Center for School Safety is proud to announce that Kentucky Safe Schools Week is set for October 18–24, 2020. As we try to support the various types of instruction across the commonwealth, we bring resources to enhance the safety practices that are necessary to keep our schools safe. This year's theme is “HEALTHY HABITS, Shield Our Schools!” During this time of transition, developing healthy habits are necessary for student safety. Our Kentucky Safe Schools Week Webpage (www.kysafeschools.org/ssw.php) offers resources and materials to promote safety in this time of pandemic. The Healthy Habits Safety Pledge includes safety steps for students whether they are learning virtually or face-to-face. Incorporating healthy practices daily, such as wearing masks, washing hands, social distancing and being kind (both in person and online). These practices can become healthy habits as schools continue to strive for academic excellence and provide a safer place to learn.
Join us, as we practice healthy habits and encourage kindness in our school culture.
