Buckle-Up Bowl Week a Huge Success

Deputy Tony Pluta helps JVS Preschoolers practice buckling up.

The Buckle-Up Bowl was a huge success. The week was spent promoting safe driving habits throughout the building and on our social media channels. The Buckle-Up Bowl happens every year, at high schools across Lorain County, who partner with the Lorain County Safe Community Coalition to promote the event.

One of the newest editions to this year’s festivities was a video created by our Digital Media Arts students that was posted and shared on our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel at http://bit.ly/JVSBucklesUp.

Crash Dummies Vince and Larry visited students during lunch passing out “Dum-Dum” suckers to those students who signed the pledge to buckle up.

Ohio State Highway Patrol officers visited students during students’ lunch periods as well, letting students don fatal vision impairment goggles to let them experience what it feels like when driving drunk, high, or otherwise impaired.

School Resource Officer Deputy Tony Pluta and Principal Jill Petitti visited the JVS preschool and did a “Buckle-Up Bear” activity and read a special story. Preschoolers had the chance to practice their “buckling up skills” with Deputy Pluta!

“Year-end graduations, celebrations, and proms always provide an opportunity to remind high school students to drive safely,” stated JVS Principal Jill Petitti. “The Buckle-Up Bowl is an opportunity to start this conversation in a big way. We really work hard at the JVS to keep our students safe behind the wheel.”
