Starting in 2018-2019, local police officers have an open invitation for tours and lunch at any Royse City ISD campus. The program, Hometown Heroes, is one of many new safety and security efforts being taken by the district. Essentially, specific officers are adopted by the schools as their Hometown Hero.
“For years, we have enjoyed great relationships with the cities of Royse City and Fate. Hometown Heroes is simply another way for us to show our appreciation for all of their efforts to keep our students and campuses safe. Whether they stop by for a cup of coffee or lunch, we just want them to know we are thankful for their service to our communities,” said RCISD Director of Student Services/Safety & Security Lloyd Blaine.
The program is designed to both familiarize officers with schools as well as increase their visibility on campuses. Dedicated parking spots are right outside the front door of each school. To learn more about Hometown Heroes, contact Lloyd Blaine at 972-635-5071.
