“School Safety is a top priority for us at Lake Geneva Schools.  As a Core Strategy in our Strategic Plan, we work every day to maintain an environment where students and staff feel physically, mentally and emotionally safe.  We have invested heavily in School Safety throughout the past several years and are extremely grateful for this grant money to further strengthen the safety in all of our schools”, James Gottinger, Superintendent, Lake Geneva Schools.
