Submitted Article

Rep. Jonathan Fritz (Susquehanna/Wayne) announced that Wayne Highlands School District (Wayne County) and Blue Ridge School District (Susquehanna County) each received $25,000 in Safe Schools Targeted grants.

These grants will be used to purchase security-related equipment such as student, staff and visitor identification systems; metal detectors; protective lighting; surveillance equipment; special emergency communications equipment; electronic locksets; deadbolts and theft control devices; or training in the use of the security-related technology.

School safety in Pennsylvania is one of our top priorities as a Legislature,” said Fritz. “Parents and students deserve the peace of mind that is essential to having an optimal learning experience. Through these grants, schools here in the Commonwealth will be able to upgrade their security measures and continue to provide a safe environment for our children.”

Funding for these grants is provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office for Safe Schools.

The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
