RUSTY JOHNSON NAMED DISTRICT SAFETY LIAISON Rusty Johnson, who has spent the last 20 years with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, has been named Springdale Public Schools District Safety Liaison. Johnson has been involved with emergency management, search and rescue and the disaster team during his years with the Game and Fish Commission. He is a graduate of Springdale High School and the University of Arkansas. “My whole world, other than our son in college, is here in Springdale,” Johnson said. “My wife (Jody) is the assistant principal at Bayyari Elementary and our eight-year-old is in school there. I have heard so much about the culture of Springdale Schools, I am excited about this opportunity to work with the district’s safety plan.” Johnson’s responsibilities will include conducting building threat assessments for all 31 Springdale Schools, building intervention teams at every school, training school personnel and students how to respond to mental health crises, and expanding anonymous reporting practices of “See Something, Say Something.” Johnson also will oversee the COPS and Stop the School Violence grants through the United States Department of Justice, will assume district safety meetings, plan district emergency procedures, oversee a district safety website, grow district relationships with the Springdale police, fire and emergency services departments and provide professional development for ALICE, anti-vaping, Catapult EMS, mental health and much more. “We are overjoyed Mr. Johnson has agreed to join our Springdale family,” said Superintendent Dr. Jared Cleveland. “He is a specialist in his field and will help strengthen our safety pillar significantly over time. We all look forward to working with and learning from Mr. Johnson.”

T-minus 2 days till the National EAST Conference begins. Students at 28 schools in Springdale will be attending the conference, which will be virtual this year. T. G. Smith- When asked what she most likes about EAST, Mackenzie Landry said “EAST is a place where we can work on things we are passionate about. It allows us to help other people that are in need and it makes us feel good during the process.” The students at Smith will be sharing many projects this week including their partnership with Officer Sanchez who is a dog trainer and was a member of the Springdale Police department for many years. According to the students, “Our school, like many other schools, have endured a lot this past year. COVID, social issues, and just the challenges that come with growing up. We wanted to help our fellow students power through these challenges so we decided to research getting a therapy dog.”

Xitlaly, along with the rest of the Kelly Conference Team, will be sharing their school’s projects with hundreds of other EAST schools. One project they plan to share is the Kelly Coffee Klatch which provides an opportunity for students to work in a small school based business. We are providing our students an opportunity to practice essential life skills. They use critical thinking when preparing orders, organizing deliveries, and preparing for the next business day.
