A Safety Reminder for Primary School Parents

This morning two children intentionally exited the Pleasant Avenue School without permission. Their absences were immediately noticed and law enforcement was called. Through cooperation of the staff and law enforcement, the children were found shortly thereafter and returned safely to school. Although the children were returned safely without incident, we feel it is necessary to provide this notice and inform you of this situation. The safety of your children is of utmost importance to the Greater Johnstown School District, and we always look to reflect on situations to review and refine our safety protocols. We would encourage parents to have a gentle conversation with their children about staying on school grounds where adult supervision is provided for their safety.
