Letter to the editor: Kudos to North Hills School District for BeSMART event

November 24, 2018 GMT

To the editor,

As a parent of three children in North Hills School District, I want to thank the administration of NHSD for hosting a BeSMART event on Oct. 24. BeSMART encourages responsible adults to reduce suicides and the number of unintentional shootings that occur when children get a hold of an unsecured firearm.

This event shows that the administration cares about the safety of our students and their families. The administration is also implementing programs like the Sandy Hook Promise as a part of their efforts to improve student safety at school. These efforts are needed at all districts in the area, but I’m especially proud that North Hills is leading the way in a time when our communities need to do all they can to reduce gun violence and save lives.
