Safe Homes Network

Donna Lacovara is our SAC. The acronym stands for Substance Awareness Coordinator, but her role touches on more than specific “substance” related topics. As a result, we have taken to calling her a Student Assistance Coordinator. This SAC position was re-introduced for this 2007-08 school year. There were a couple of years here at Woodbury without anyone formally in the position.

Mrs. Lacovara has been actively building connections in various segments of the school community. Her role is district-wide, but she will often focus a good bit of her attention on the students and issues that impact them during the Jr.-Sr. High School years.

One new concept that has come from Mrs. Lacovara’s work is the idea of a Safe Homes pledge.

This was introduced at the evening meeting focusing on safety that was held last December. A link to the Safe Homes Pledge is now up and running on our website:

Go to the Pupil Services drop box and follow to the Safe Homes Network. It will take you to the actual pledge. At the bottom of that pledge is the list of families who have returned their forms to date.
