SAFETY LESSONS- School Resource Officer Dave Schutz talks to students in all grades up to 5th about spring, fall, winter and summer safety. We go to their classrooms and interact with the children on these correct safety measures during the different times of the year. This also creates a positive relationship between the police officers and the students. During the summer officers attend safety town at Hudson Maxim school. There we teach children the rules of the road and how to be safe.
