Penn Hills School District will host a safety discussion for eighth grade and high school students and families.

It is scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m. April 24 at the high school, 309 Collins Drive.

There will be a panel of student athletes and coaches, representatives from the municipal police department, United Way, Pittsburgh Action Against Rape and Dr. Liz Miller from UPMC Children's Hospital.

“It is an informational session for high school safety,” district Professional Development & Funding Coordinator Stefanie Raspotnik said. “We are hoping to get eighth grade students and parents there before they start at the high school next year. We are informing parents about the safety procedures that are in place at the high school and also sharing information about the supportive partnerships and programs we have.”

District officials are calling the event We Care. No registration is required. Pizza and refreshments will be served.

“It's a great opportunity for students and parents to see what resources are available at the high school, everything from social to physical safety,” district Spokesperson Teresita Kolenchak said.

More information is available on the district's website .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
