With a Community of Respect serving as one of the Marshfield Public School District’s (MPSD) areas of focus for the 2016-17 school year, we gladly join Chief Tavares and the Marshfield Police Department (MPD) in supporting “High Five Friday” which will take place on Friday, March 24th as our students arrive at their respective schools.
The MPSD and the MPD have a wonderful relationship and beyond having a School Resource Officer at the high school, we are fortunate to have liaison officers at each of our schools for many years now. They are a bridge between the school and the police and our students and staff welcome the support they receive from the MPD.
Many times throughout the school year, members of the MPD meet and greet the students at our school but on “High Five Friday” they will greet the students upon arrival and give them a high five to start their day off on a positive note. This is a tremendous way to build on the sense engagement that already exists between the schools and police and is in line with our focus on a Community of Respect.
We look forward to “High Five Friday” and we thank Chief Tavares and the entire MPD for their continued support of our schools and for the collaboration we have with them in ensuring the safety of our students and staff.
