Suicide Prevention Night at the Ballpark 
Support suicide prevention in Pennsylvania with our second annual Suicide Prevention Night at the Ballpark. The Pennsylvania Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative (PAYSPI) and the PA Adult/Older Adult Suicide Prevention Coalition will once again partner with the Harrisburg Senators for a special suicide prevention night on Friday, June 12.  Also, there will be a Suicide Prevention Night with the Phillies on Friday, June 26. Come out and be a presence to support suicide prevention. In addition to great baseball, the winning submissions for the 2015 PAYSPI youth suicide PSA contest will be on display at both games.   Our own Big Spring team of Libby Anderson, Starr Snyder, and Kevin Brobst produced a 60 second video and won 2nd place in this competition.  You may purchase your DISCOUNT tickets at www.payspi.org by clicking on the baseball slider.

Security Camera Installation on District Buses

In the Big Spring School District, we continually strive to ensure the safety and security of our students.  For that reason, the District is in the process of installing security cameras on all district buses.  If your child rides a district bus (to/from school, activity buses, field trips, etc.), he/she may be subject to video recording.  For more information, please contact the District Transportation Coordinator at 717-776-2408.
