Dayton students enjoy Pizza with Police

Dayton Police Officer Josh Fregia is surrounded by Richter Elementary students during his visit there for Pizza With Police.

The elementary students around Dayton ISD invited local law enforcement officers to lunch right before Christmas break. Pizza with Police was the idea of Dayton ISD’s Child Nutrition department.

“This was a great success! The students had a wonderful time eating and talking with various Sheriff Bobby Rader’s Liberty County [deputies], Constable Robby Thornton’s Precinct # 4 officers, Dayton PD, Game Warden, DPS Troopers, and of course our own Harris County Precinct #3 officers. In fact, several of the officers made it to multiple campuses that day,” said Food Services Director Marcy Rutland.

The students of Dayton ISD and the staff are very appreciative of the job that all of the peace officers do for the district.

“The district was excited to plan an event to show our first responders and law officers that we appreciate them. Many great things came out of the Pizza with a Police Day including getting more officers to tour and become familiar with our facilities, but more importantly, they had the opportunity to build positive relationships with our children. In fact, we are planning another event for the spring semester,” said Assistant Superintendent of Support Services, Hector Herrera, who is over both the Safe and Secure Schools Program and the Child Nutrition Department.

Dayton ISD is proud of the partnerships they have with all of the local law enforcement departments and will continue to strengthen those relationships in the future, a statement for the District reads.
