LISD celebrates America’s Safe Schools and National School Bus Safety | #schoolsaftey

The Laredo ISD Police Department and the LISD Health and Occupational Safety Support Services Department conducted a parade in celebration of America’s Safe Schools and National School Bus Safety Week which were observed October 16-20.

Police vehicles from the LISD Police Department, Webb County Constables Office, Webb County Sheriff’s Office, and Laredo PD assembled at Garden and San Bernardo Avenue to start their red, white, and blue light and siren show which started at Martin High School. Law enforcement agencies were greeted with a wave of members from the MHS Cheerleaders and Tigerettes, MHS JROTC, and the MHS Banda del Animo. 

This annual observance brings awareness to school safety and security. “Safety is a shared responsibility for all students, staff, and community. We are thankful for all our community partners who have joined us in celebrating Safety Week,” LISD Health and Occupational Safety Support Services Executive Director Dr. Oscar Perez said. “At Laredo ISD safety is a top priority.” 

The parade continued its way past 20 LISD schools before it made its way to the LISD Performing Arts Complex. The activity concluded with a proclamation ceremony.

“As I like to say, ‘stand back from the yellow and black.’ Every day we combine forces to raise safety awareness in the streets. I’d like to ask the community that if they see our bus monitors, bus drivers, school mechanics, or our office staff, thank them for the efforts they provide every day,” LISD Transportation Department Director Alexis Solis said.

Additionally, LISD PD Chief Doreen Hale said the purpose of this activity was to recognize the importance of ensuring LISD schools are safe, secure, and productive by allowing the students to engage and have them observe how law enforcement agencies stand together to protect them. This security helps students stay focused on learning and pursue their potential. 

America’s Safe Schools Week activities remind students, their parents, employees, and the school community that law enforcement officers are here to protect them. The National School Safety Center established Safe School Week in 1984. School safety includes keeping campuses free of crime and violence, improving discipline, and increasing student attendance. Schools that are safe and free of violence, weapons and drugs are necessary to ensure the well-being of all children and the quality of their education.
