New Campaign Warns People of the Dangers of Hot Cars

New Campaign Warns People of the Dangers of Hot Cars

 

Police, firefighters and city officials from Henderson launched an effort Tuesday to remind people to not leave children or pets in the car.

The Check Your Seats in the Heat… Because Heat Kills campaign works to spread awareness about the dangers of leaving animals or children in a hot car. The campaign organizers want people to not only remember to check the seats of their own cars, but to also keep an eye on cars in parking lots.

“Every year, tragically, children are left in cars unattended and can suffer heat illnesses. Every year, on average, 33 of them die from being left in the car unattended,” Daniel Pentkowski, President of Henderson Professional Firefighters, said.

On May 24, the Clark County School District (CCSD) released rankings for every high school through the School Performance Framework (SPF), a program that rates schools on factors beyond student achievement and test scores.

Liberty received a four-star ranking and fell just two points shy of a five-star ranking, the highest achievement possible. Rankings are determined by a point system in which four key performance indicators are evaluated: graduation rates, college and career readiness, academic growth and school climate.

Hundreds of students, parents and faculty attended a candlelight vigil service Thursday afternoon in honor of Lionel Nacua and Isaac Polu, two members of the Liberty High School family who passed away Monday.

At the vigil, hosted by Athletic Director Louis Markouzis, students and other members of the Liberty community were invited to light candles in remembrance of those lost this week.  Following that emotional ceremony, Markouzis introduced Dr. Jeffrey Geihs, LHS Principal, who addressed the group.
