New Safety Buckets to be Placed in each Classroom

Struthers City Schools District Security Team assembled “Safety Buckets” that will be placed in each classroom throughout the district. This initiative started back in 2014, and thanks to the help of Home Depot in Boardman they have become a reality one year later.

When the safety committee began its discussions, their overall goal was to provide new resources to students and staff in the case of a school lockdown or emergency. The committee put together surveys asking for recommendations on what to place in the buckets, and they also brainstormed how they were going to pay for the buckets.

As a result, Struthers City Schools partnered with Home Depot in Boardman to compile the safety buckets for the district. Home Depot provided the district with buckets to put all the supplies in, as well as almost all the items placed inside the buckets. Home Depot Store Manager Timothy Hephner said this was the first time they had partnered with an area school district on a project like this and they were happy to help out.

The safety buckets will include seven-eight items each, including a hammer, toilet paper, water bottle, rope, first-aid supplies, bug spray and food for diabetic children, just to name a few.

“Safety has always been a priority in Struthers Schools and our Safety Buckets are a useful tool to help protect our students should there ever be an emergency,” Yvonne Wilson, director of diversion and safety for Struthers City Schools.
