Letter to the Editor: Resident Asking Others to Contact Board of Education Representatives For School Safety
Dear Editor, Edmonson Voice:
Thank you for your recent article regarding school safety here in Edmonson County. I was notified by our Director of Facilities & Safety, Callie Beliles, that she has obtained quotes for the remaining ballistic film needed in our schools. She will present these quotes to our local Board of Education at the upcoming meeting on Monday, May 8.
I am copying our school board representative, Alex Ulm, on this message. I ask everyone in Edmonson County to contact your own school board representative to request that they provide Ms. Beliles with the resources she needs to complete this project as well as other urgent safety needs. For example, I recently learned that common areas of Edmonson County High School are without a working intercom system. Imagine trying to communicate to students during an emergency without a working intercom. School safety should be our #1 priority, and that should be reflected in our school funding.
If anyone doesn’t know who your School Board representative is, here is a list:
