Richland One to Hold Parent Information Session On School Safety



Richland One parents will learn how they can support the district’s efforts to maintain safe and secure learning environments at an upcoming information session.


School safety and security procedures, student expectations and accountability, parent involvement, and district support services and interventions will be among the topics covered during the one-hour information sessions. Presenters will include district staff and representatives of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department and the Columbia Police Department.


“Keeping our schools safe and secure is a shared responsibility, and our parents play an important role in reinforcing that message to students, including encouraging them to report anything they see or hear that could pose a threat to safety to an adult.”


The date and location of the information sessions are listed below. The session will begin at 6 p.m. Parents may choose the information session date and location most convenient for them.


  • Monday, March 25 – Lower Richland High School auditorium, 2615 Lower Richland Boulevard, Hopkins


Time will be allotted for questions. District administrators and law enforcement representatives also will be available after the information sessions to talk with parents and address any specific questions or concerns they may have.
