Los Angeles School Police will be visiting four Valley area elementary schools beginning Friday, May 30, to discuss summer safety tips, codes of conduct, bullying and expectations in middle school. School staff and teachers will also address concerns their students may have as they transition to the next academic level.

Appearing at these events will be police officers and sergeants, as well as those from the campus support unit, motor unit and K-9 unit.

“The ‘Ready Set Go’ program was created to focus on fifth graders transitioning to middle school,” said police Sgt. Judy Julie Spry. “They have to deal with a new environment, understand new responsibilities, and know the school police department is there to assist them, support them and and guide them., Sgt. July Spry.

Spry said the program is in its fourth year, and has visited more than 50 schools, in part to promote “positive interaction” between officers and students.

“We do our jobs, but we are still people, we do care about the kids and want to work for their success, Spry said.
