Every child deserves to be safe at school. Families in Henderson County have already had to deal with the heartbreaking fallout of senseless gun violence. We have the power to curtail gun violence at its source and keep it from spreading into our schools. But it takes everyone doing their part to keep kids safe.

It’s past time that Henderson County Public Schools take a proactive role in urging families and caregivers to Be SMART for kids!

Secure all guns in your home and vehicles.
Model responsible behavior around guns.
Ask about the presence of unsecured guns in other homes.
Recognize the role of guns in suicide.
Tell your peers to be SMART.
