Community Education

As parents, educators and professionals we all need to work together in order to have the most current information possible in order to keep our community and children safe.  This page is dedicated to a multitude of resources that will provide you this information.  We all must take the time to keep ourselves educated so that we can in turn educate those we love, care for, teach, and mentor.  I hope you find this page helpful and should you have any suggestions please do not hesitate to give me a call.

 

Thank You,

 

Chief Todd A. Faulkner
