    PRESENTATION OF "MOVE OVER" SIGN TO TOMS RIVER SOUTH BY DONNA SETARO
    The mother of a New Jersey state trooper struck and killed by a car while on duty is educating the public about New Jersey's " Move Over" law. Donna Setaro says she believes that her son, Trooper Marc Castellano, would still be alive if more people were aware of the law." It became a law in January 2009, and yet only 15 percent of the population is aware of it." The law requires drivers to change lanes or slow down when approaching a stopped emergency vehicle. Trooper Castellano was struck and killed by a car while working a case along the side of Interstate 195 in Howell on June 6, 2010. Donna says her mission is to educate New Jersey drivers about the law so that a similar tragedy does not happen again. One method that she uses effectively is to visit schools and educate students about the law. The presentation of the sign to Toms River South was performed on Monday, May 7th.The sign will be installed on the cement wall located in the parking lot of the tennis court and auxiliary field. It will face the street.

    The Indians Kick Off Their Sunday Shoes!
    The Toms River High School South Theatre Guild is proud to present Footloose on March 1, 2, & 3, 2018. One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren isn't prepared for the rigorous local laws, which include a ban on dancing by the town preacher. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren and her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, it is up to Ren to show the town the value of a fresh point of view. Set to the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score, with dynamic new songs for the stage, Footloose is a celebration of youth and life through dance and upbeat music. All performances begin at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $7.00 and are available at the door of the High School South cafetorium on Hooper Avenue, Toms River.

    Parent Notification
    This Friday evening we have our first home football game. I have already reminded our student body that tailgating is not permitted on school property and that our Student Code of Conduct and Drug and Alcohol Policy will be strictly enforced at all school events. While I recognize the importance of social events, student spectators will not be permitted to gather on school grounds until 6 PM for our 7 PM start of game. Students may being food to enjoy before the game, but backpacks and outside drinks will not be permitted into the stadium. Students are encouraged to show their school spirit and pride in a positive manner at all events. To assist with supervision and safety of our students and guests we will have representatives from the Toms River Police Department, Toms River Schools Security, Toms River South Administration, and HS South Staff monitor our parking lots, campus, and spectator stands during this event. Please speak with your child so we can work together in a proactive way to prevent violations of our policy.

    This morning I was informed of a gas leak in the downtown area. Working closely with TR Police Dept. and our Central Administrators we made the decision to keep all students inside HS South during lunch periods today until the problem was corrected. Shortly after this announcement was made, TRPD and local utilities had corrected the problem and the area was once again safe for public use. All students are safe and always have the option of lunch within our cafeteria. Thank you for your support as we continue to always have the safety of our students as our first priority.

    Freshmen 'Come Up for AIR'
    For the second year in a row Toms River High School South’s freshmen class attended a presentation called “Coming up for AIR”, which aims to educate students about mental health disorders and suicide prevention. Mrs. Tricia Baker and her family, founders of AIR, came up with this program after the loss of their son/brother to suicide. AIR (Attitudes In Reverse) is 100% volunteer driven 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to reverse attitudes about mental health stigma. The take away message is that “Mental illness is like air. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. It is all around us.” Students were challenged to let go of their judgments and understand that no one should be criticized because they have a biological-based brain illness. All people, no matter what their differences, should be treated with respect and kindness. It is a heavy topic but much needed during the difficult time of adolescence. Students were able to visit with the Baker’s therapy dogs which left all smiling on their way out. Thank you to the Bakers and all that make AIR a successful program for young people.
