Sheriff Blaise Smith and the SRO (School Resource Officers) Section of the SMPSO have put together a back to school video with safety tips for motorists and parents as well as an encouraging message from Sheriff Smith for our students.
Our private schools in St. Mary Parish have already started back to school and the St. Mary Parish Public Schools will begin next week after Labor Day.
COVID-19 has impacted the way schools will operate with some students attending on alternate days, virtual learning, classroom layouts, social distancing protocol, and other adjustments.
Sheriff Smith challenges the students to remember what is important… their education. We wish all our students the very best as they begin this school year.
Our SROs are an awesome group of deputies who work alongside our school system to keep our students safe. They are committed to the students of St. Mary Parish and as you will see in the video, they are fun to work with and there is no doubt why our students love them!
(Hint: watch the video ALL the way to the end and the “bloopers” will help you to understand…)
