Collins Dentistry Hosts Children’s Safety Fair
On Saturday September 24, Collins Dentistry for Children will be hosting their sixth annual Children’s Safety Fair at their office, located at 100 Bridge Street in Pelham. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. In sponsoring the event, Collins Dentistry has teamed up with DNA LifePrint, who will be present and offering free Child ID Kits to all who attend. Each ID Kit includes a current digital photo, complete set of digital finger prints, and a safety pamphlet that provides important safety tips for children and parents. Parents are given the completed kit to keep in a safe location. Collins Dentistry will be providing Toothprints dental impressions at no charge for all children who attend. The Toothprints dental impression is a new tool that can be used by parents and law enforcement agencies in the unfortunate event of a missing or abducted child. The special material used to make the impression also collects a sample of each child’s saliva, which provides law enforcement agents with a DNA sample and possible scent to be used by tracking dogs. Children will have the opportunity to play in a bounce house, receive a balloon animal, grab a free hot dog and cider, meet members of the Pelham Fire and Police Departments, and tour their emergency vehicles. As if all that excitement was not enough, mascots from the University of Massachusetts Riverhawks and Lowell Spinners are expected to make guest appearances to meet the public and sign autographs.

Superintendent Says Schools Can’t Open Without Crossing Guards
by S. Aaron Shamshoyan After Selectmen voted to transfer School Resource Officers (SRO) to the patrol division and eliminate funding for crossing guards, School Board members discussed the possibility of funding the positions with the school’s budget. “Can we open school without the crossing guards,

absolutely not,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Delahanty, addressing the board on the issue. Delahanty recommended the board fund the two

resource officers for the high school and middle school, along with the community liaison officer and crossing guards. The cost of the two resource officers would be $180,000 along with an additional $90,000 for the community liaison position, and $50,000 for the crossing guards, a total of about $320,000. The town plans to support the SRO positions through July 1, 2012.

“Our SROs are trained by the national association of school resource officers,” Delahanty said, asking for the boards support. SROs deal with behaviors not related to police work, but in the job description, he said, listing topics including classroom discussion with students about issues in society and in schools, discussion on drugs, juvenile delinquency, and goal setting and achieving. “Getting into the classrooms gives students a different perspective of police officers,” he added, mentioning that students look up to the officers as roll models. The Superintendent also mentioned how SROs can act as resource councilors to students, helping them with issues they are having, or directing them to the proper staff within the school. School Resource Officers
are law enforcement officers. “They will tell you that their first obligation is as law enforcement officers,” Delahanty continued, saying the law requires separation between school administration and resource officers. Board Member Pamela Berry questioned how funding for the officers would take place, asking if they would be considered school district employees, to which Board Member Bernard Campbell responded saying “we would be sending the money to the town.” Berry supported the positions. “I see them as essential to the district,” she said, adding that parents have been supportive of the positions also. The board also discussed the community liaison position, as it is the duty of the officer to schedule, oversee, and train crossing guards. Board Chairman Peter Morgan
says he would like to set up a joint meeting with Selectmen to discuss the matter. SROs have served the school district since 1993.
