From the Sandwich Police Department:
This past week all Sandwich High School Senior boys and girls received personal safety classes. This is held over two full days of school each year during the last two weeks of school. This course has been offered the past 4 years & aims to send students out into the post high school world with valuable knowledge and resources on how to keep themselves safe.
Subjects covered are campus and workplace safety, sexual assault including areas of consent, How to properly report & get help if victimized, Healthy vs. unhealthy relationships, Drugs and Alcohol and Fire Safety. The girls are given additional physical hands on training.
School Resource Officer Cabral was graciously assisted by SPD Officer Jessica Kent, SPD intern Natalie Fachada, Sandwich Fire Prevention Officer Sean Miller, Deputies Sean Cahill and Bob Roth of Barnstable County Sheriff’s Dept. and several Sandwich High School staff members: Amy Delgado, Kristen Young, Matt Maclean, Brian Tomasini and Connor Greene, all who shared many of their own personal experiences with students. Thank you to all.
