Earlier today, the Transportation Safety Review Committee met to discuss an issue of concern to all parents and their students; i.e. student safety at bus stops. The Committee agreed to ask parents to remind their students to be extra careful at this time of the year due to darkness in the early mornings and late afternoons. If a student has to cross a street to get onto the school bus, the student should always wait for a signal from the bus driver before leaving the bus stop to board the bus.

"Instead of wearing a police uniform everyday to school and dealing with the kids I asked if I could make it more softer, more kid friendly. We came up with some different shirts." A few of Officer Powers shirts serve as a representation. The Green represents the Hillers, he wears Red on Fridays for support the troop day. Each shirt has Officer Phil's badge as well as job title on the front and reads "Police" on the back to make him identifiable as a Police Officer in a casual manner.
