Useful links for parents, teens and kids

The following website links provide a wealth of information on a wide variety of topics, from safe online activities for kids to bully-free living.

The links were housed on a web page formerly reserved for our School Resource Officer. As you may be aware, the SRO program was eliminated statewide due to a lack of funding in the state budget.

Former School Resource Officer Steve Rothwein no longer works in our district, but he does patrol the area as a state trooper working out of the trooper barracks in the town of New Scotland.
