Keeping With Tradition: Sleepy Hollow Police Officers Read to Children

For years, members of the Sleepy Hollow Police Department visit with and read to students at Morse. This year, the Coronavirus prevented them from personally meeting with students, so instead, Student Resource Office McGuire, Officer Bencosme, Officer Sosa and Officer Martelo met with students over google meet.

The officers read a story virtually to each group and the students loved seeing the officers on the screen, especially without a mask. Morse

SRO McGuire and teacher Toyna Richardson coordinated the effort to provide some normalcy to students. Richardson said she looks forward to more interactions with the department.
