GENESEO, N.Y., Sept. 8, 2022 — As kindergarten through 12th-grade students throughout the County begin returning to the classroom, Livingston County would like to welcome back and wish all students a productive, healthy and safe 2022-2023 school year.
The County partners with and supports local school districts in a number of important areas including public health, family support, and student and staff safety.
This year, the County will continue to provide school resource deputy services to area schools. These law enforcement officers remain in school buildings throughout the day helping to maintain the safety and welfare of students and staff. They work in collaboration with the school and the community as a resource for safety and security issues. School resource deputies also make a difference in local communities by providing a trusted source of positive community modeling through a proactive and positive approach to juvenile crime reduction. Visit the Livingston County Sheriff’s website or call (585) 243-7100 for more information on the school resource deputy service.
The Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH) provides public health services and information for community members including parents, teachers and school staff throughout the year. LCDOH continues to provide updates on communicable diseases, including COVID-19, to the community. Health department officials also encourage families to make sure childhood immunizations are up-to-date. They offer immunization clinics that provide vaccinations for families who are unable to receive them elsewhere. The LCDOH also offers mental health resources for students in need and speech therapy services for qualifying children. Visit www.gvhp.org for information on how LCDOH works with communities to prevent childhood obesity, including strategies to "eat better, move more, and stress less."
