   Over the summer, the LC Valley experienced a lot of tragedy. There are important safety measures we can all take to make our community a safer environment. His job is to protect our school and make students feel safe in their environment by taking extra safety measures.
  
“There are lots of ways to stay safe, but the number one is staying away from drugs and alcohol and following the law. These laws are made to keep you safe.” states Massey. “If you ever go somewhere unsafe like hunting or camping, never go alone, always bring someone with you.” These tips may seem obvious, but taking careful measures when going places are the key to staying safe. We can all work together to create a better and safer community for teenagers in the LCV. Massey also talks about not being influenced by peer pressure, “I think a lot of teens get in trouble by following the actions of their friends.” “If you’re friends are doing dumb things, don’t follow, be the smart one in the group.”
  
Events in any person’s life may bring stress, anxiety or even depression. For teens, children and even adults, there are plenty of resources to provide help beyond personal therapy or counselling, which can be especially expensive for people without insurance. Listed below are some resources for anyone to use, any time, locally and internationally.
