BELLEFONTE AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT
Safety Committee Meeting Minutes
A meeting of the District’s Safety Committee was
held December 21, 2005 at 2:00 p.m. at the High School Teachers Lounge.
Those in attendance were: William Cain, Aaron Barto, Judy Ripka, Patti
Hillard, Georgi Johnson, Betsy Bennett, Terry Bandel & Pearl Hampton.
Aaron read November meeting minutes and no changes
were made. Minutes were approved as read.
- Students walking down the ramp to Bishop
Street. A student slipped and fell under a bus the other week;
thankfully the driver heard her scream and stopped before actually
hitting her. We have stationed Administrators at the ramp both
mornings and afternoons to make sure that students use the sidewalk.
Aaron also purchased signs that are to be posted that states that
all pedestrians use the sidewalk at all times.
- Custodians are now required to fill out a
monthly safety checklist provided by Aaron.
