Region 8 students are informed on safety

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Students are learning more than reading and math.  In many schools across Region 8, SAFETY is becoming a big lesson.     

The Morgan Nick Foundation was at the Valley View School District Wednesday. Grade by grade students filed into the gym to hear from the foundation's prevention education coordinator.

Kelly Hays catered her talk to the younger students, highlighting issues like stranger danger and Internet safety.

Principal Pam Clark says it's important that the students get this information at such a young age. 

"They surprise you with what they remember, especially with a presentation like this. She does a great job. She brings a cartoon and music into it, and that makes them pay attention," said Clark.

The Morgan Nick Foundation partners with the state attorney general's office to provide this information to schools across the state.

Valley View administrators hope to bring back the foundation so that even more students can learn to better protect themselves.
