(File photo)Thursday evening, City Hall released a statement from Mayor Bill Bogaard and City Manager Michael Beck about the passing of former Councilmember Sid Tyler which included funeral information.The statement reads:By now, we are sure most of you have heard the sad news regarding the passing of former Pasadena Councilmember Sid Tyler. His sudden death has left many throughout our City and at City Hall with a profound sense of loss as Mr. Tyler was one of the most admired and respected citizens of Pasadena.Mr. Sidney F. Tyler was an important member of the Pasadena community for more than 45 years. He served on the City Council from 1997 to 2009; his steadfast advocacy for Pasadena’s Urban Forest was well known and he helped shape what Pasadena is today. He was a mentor, friend and colleague to all who came to know him.After graduating from Harvard, Mr. Tyler served with honor in the U.S. Marine Corps and subsequently pursued a distinguished career in the private sector as a senior finance executive in health services. Throughout the years, he devoted countless hours giving back to the community he loved, serving on many boards for community organizations, foundations, museums and his church.As a City Councilmember, he was instrumental in shaping the City’s decision to retain our electric utility during deregulation. He provided valuable oversight and leadership with the Fire and Police Retirement System and was a passionate voice for the City’s role as an environmental leader. His financial acumen in the private sector provided the City solid fiscal leadership and accountability.Above all, he was humble and self-effacing about his many accomplishments and how important he was to Pasadena. He was as quick to pick up a piece of discarded paper from the sidewalk as he was to roll up his sleeves to help on the bigger, more complicated challenges our City faced. He leaves behind a legacy of community and public service accomplishments and he will be truly missed.We hope you will keep Mr. Tyler’s family—his wife Betsey, their four children and eight grandchildren—in your thoughts and prayers during this time. As your schedule permits, you are also welcome to attend the funeral service being planned for 2 p.m., Saturday, April 12, at All Saints Episcopal Church. A further celebration of his life will follow at 3 p.m. in the City Hall Courtyard.Thank you.Bill Bogaard, MayorMichael J.

College updates students on campus response to coronavirus

first_imgSaint Mary’s announced several updates to campus coronavirus response in an email to College students Thursday, including new restrictions to residence hall activity and campus amenities.“This is a situation that is fluid and changing almost by the hour,” interim vice president for student affairs Linda Timm said in the email. She said while the College will allow students to return to campus while classes are remote, they are strongly encouraged to stay at home if possible. Students who elect to reside on campus must fill out a form detailing recent travels. The form must be submitted at least 48 hours prior to students’ return, or as soon as possible for those still on campus.Most activity in Saint Mary’s residence halls and Opus apartments will be restricted until at least April 13, Timm said in the email. All students in Opus and residence halls are not permitted to have guests. “General activities” are not allowed, and students are expected to follow the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines for social distancing. Off-campus students are advised to follow the same recommendations.“Your return to your residence hall room is not an open invitation for social gatherings on or off campus,” Timm said in the email. “As members of the South Bend community, we have a responsibility to do what we can to limit further exposure to this virus.”Those who suspect they have flu or coronavirus must notify the Health and Counseling Center immediately, she said.According to the email, the dining hall will be open for students under modified hours yet to be determined. No other dining options on campus will be open. All College services and administrative departments will stay open.Angela Athletic and Wellness Complex will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays, the email said. Additional weekend hours may be added.Timm said students who return to campus to retrieve items are to check-in at their residence hall front desk upon arrival. Students may also give hall staff permission to let a friend access to their rooms to pack belongings.All who have traveled to countries classified by the CDC as Level 3 travel advisory zones must first self-quarantine for 14 days, she said in the email.“We are all encountering many changes in our daily lives,” Timm said. “We need to accept the reality that things may change for a short time; however, if there is one thing I know, members of the Saint Mary’s community will rise to the occasion and navigate this with compassion and grit. Please continue to take care of yourselves and each other by following the recommended actions provided by the CDC.”Tags: coronavirus, COVID-19, vice president for student affairslast_img read more

Pennsylvania School Safety Task Force Calls for Strengthening Security, More Mental Health Services, Community Connections

first_img Education,  National Issues,  Press Release,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and Auditor General Eugene DePasquale today announced the common themes that will be addressed in an upcoming report from the Pennsylvania School Safety Task Force, created by Gov. Wolf and the Auditor General in February after the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. This announcement comes following the passage of Gov. Wolf’s 2018-19 bi-partisan budget, which includes $60 million for a School Safety Fund to strengthen security and mental health services in schools.Appointed by the governor, the task force held a series of six regional roundtables at schools from April through June to listen to students, parents, school officials, school nurses and other health care professionals, law enforcement, education organizations and community members about their ideas to improve safety and security.“I commend the work of all those who participated in the task force – especially the students – for providing their incredible perspectives,” said Governor Wolf. “It was clear in every region of the state that keeping our schools safe requires a holistic approach focused on students and our communities so that our classrooms can be focused on learning.“While I will continue to push for progress on gun safety reform, including universal background checks and keeping guns from dangerous individuals, this work is important to ensure we’re doing everything we can to protect our students and teachers.”“In the last few months, it’s been my privilege to travel the state meeting students who are deeply invested in each other’s safety,” said Auditor General DePasquale. “This generation of students is smart, informed, and eager to positively impact the world around them. It’s become clear to me during these discussions that each school has its own unique set of challenges – but some major themes remain consistent across the state. Our regional conversations helped identify those themes; now it’s time to take what we learned and turn it into action.”Based on the expertise and opinions shared during the regional roundtables and hundreds of comments provided through an online feedback form, the task force identified multiple themes, including recommendations, barriers and opportunities. The overarching themes to strengthen school security heard by the task force include:• Improved communication and information sharing• Enhanced social and emotional learning• Increased access to mental health services, including more health professionals in schools• Building community connections• Effectively integrating law enforcement and school resource officers• Providing guidance on establishing priorities for schools• Providing schools with more resourcesRead the full content of the initial findings here.Other members of the task force included vice-chairs Derin Myers, Acting Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency; Mark DiRocco, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators; Bonita Allen, President of the Pennsylvania Parent Teacher Association; Judy Morgitan, Immediate Past President of the Pennsylvania Association of School Nurses and Practitioners; and Dolores McCracken, President of the Pennsylvania State Education Association.Each meeting included over 40 community participants invited by the vice-chairs to create a discussion focused on the needs of that region.Several members of the Wolf Administration provided support to the task force, including Homeland Security Director Marcus Brown, Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine, Labor & Industry Secretary Jerry Oleksiak, Acting State Police Commissioner Colonel Robert Evanchick, and Human Services, Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Deputy Secretary Lynn Kovich.The task force plans to release its final report before the start of the 2018-19 school year.The 2018-19 budget, which the governor signed last week, includes the newly created School Safety Fund, a $60 million investment to help individual school districts meet their local needs by funding a wide variety of programs aimed to keep students and teachers safe.The funding will be awarded to schools in the form of grants to cover a numerous expenses and programs, including physical building upgrades, security equipment, violence prevention education programs, teacher training, alternative education programs, and special and individualized mentoring programs.Also included is a new program that will allow the Pennsylvania State Police to create three regional Risk and Vulnerability Teams to help schools undergo security and safety assessments.And, the state will be creating a confidential, statewide tip line that will allow students and teachers to anonymously report potentially dangerous situations or individuals that involve schools.“This new money aligns with the themes we heard during the task force and will help address the needs of school districts by providing an immediate infusion of funds, so our schools can increase security while creating programs that meet the safety needs of their schools and communities,”” Gov. Wolf said.
