Idaho Begins ‘See, Tell, Now’ Campaign With Llamas
The Idaho legislature created the Office Of School Safety and Security this year. That office has begun a campaign to encourage awareness in schools with llamas. That's right. Llamas.
Here is what they're trying to accomplish from one of their press releases:
- One of the ways we can keep our kids and teachers safe is to raise situational awareness and encourage everyone to be vigilant.
- The SEE, TELL, NOW! campaign is one way to accomplish this goal. It reminds people that “If you SEE something, TELL someone, NOW!”
OK, gotcha. I have to ask the question. Why llamas? The answer is they said they wanted to create something memorable, but not threatening. Mission accomplished.
The campaign has a great motive. If kids (or anyone) sees something unusual in a school, tell somebody. That could be a potentially dangerous intruder or a student creating problems for other students. It's a great idea.
Enough about Tina - for now. If you have questions or just want more info, you can check out the official Idaho Office Of School Safety And Security website.
