Armor Security personnel made their debut at Friday’s home football game between Batavia and Livonia high schools. Spectators were wand-checked at the gate and security guards were on hand to ensure the only commotion was on the pitch at Van Detta Stadium. Perhaps there was also excitement in the stands as the Blue Devils swept the competition 42-6.
The security company has a contract until the end of this year, and members of the Batavia Police Department were also on hand to check for illegal parking and associated unwanted behavior. Superintendent Jason Smith has been adamant – via a letter to parents and recommending additional security – that home football games will be safe and without unwanted disruption from spectators.
Friday’s game included a moment of recognition during a dedication honoring all members of the police, fire and armed forces.
Earlier today, Smith posted his District Superintendent’s update, sharing that he is “personally excited to be starting my first full school year as Superintendent of Schools, and I look forward to hearing all the pleasure and joys associated with being a Batavia Blue Devil!” Certainly the players, staff and fans experienced one of those well-deserved joys with Friday night’s victory.
District leaders were “on the go” on the first day of school on Wednesday, he said, and they are focusing on three key pedagogical principles: effective teaching, literacy (reading and writing) in all content areas, and the delivery of engaging and consistent instruction. study programme. Smith gave advice that works for everyone: work hard and be kind.
