Cambensy advocates “OK2SAY” program

ISHPEMING — Last night, Ishpeming High School hosted a school violence and safety town hall. This is was their second stop on their school safety tour.

With school safety on everyone’s mind, local law enforcement and legislators want to take every precaution they can. With “OK 2 SAY” students can report about any threatening situations they hear or see.

“I think the biggest thing is to let the communities know we do have a lot of programs in place to keep our kids safe and to keep our school safe. The OK 2 SAY program is probably the biggest one state wide,” Sara Cambensy, 109th Michigan State Representative.

“We must act now, we cannot wait until there is a shooting. We are very much upset about what is going on around the country. We just don’t want to see anything happen in the U.P.,” said Scott Dianda, State Representative, 110th District.

The OK 2 SAY program is completely confidential, so if someone does submit a tip they are protected by law.
