I already stated in the petition how I feel but it's not all of how I feel. We need to face certain facts, times have changed. There is more violence and crime now days, even in our town and schools. Many people don't know that, it's not sent out in our weekly emails. We want officers that are trained to protect our kids. I don't care what the rest of the world is saying about police and defunding them, I care about this town, this school. Kids need to get to know the police, know they aren't out to get them, in fact 99% of police chose that job because they want to help others. OT has been at the school for years, kids like and trust him, can you honestly say that your thinking about what's best for OUR children by removing a man that's put his heart and soul into building relationships with our kids, a man many kids open up too, feel safe with, a man that I personally KNOW has helped, has real friendships with kids of all colors, can you honestly say removing him is best for our kids? I believe thru this petition you can see 90 pages of parents that disagree..I believe we should be able to decide what's best for our own children, it should be our right to have a SAY in what's best and we should of been given the chance to do that before you made a serious decision, a decision on our children's safety, ask us before you make decisions that impact the safety of the children we trust you with. Please have open lines of communication with us parents. If you want more mental health workers, I'm behind that too, In Addition to OT. The kids need both.

Having officers in schools is such a strong enforcement that police are there as protectors and resources - this is a needed position to every school district across the country. Officer Tom is amazing and a massive asset- this position needs to stay-

I sure hope this isn't the consequence of some "woke", hastily-made, decision...it would be a shame. This MUST have been a decision that was unanimously voted on - to cancel the contract of a long-standing, highly-thought-of, police officer within the St Peter School District. Can we, as parents, please see the video of the school board session where this decision was made?
