Riding the Roller Coaster – as a parent of an adolescent the road to young adulthood can be as thrilling or as dangerous as a roller coaster ride. Nothing prepares you for the social, emotional and developmental hurdles that await young people as they go through adolescence. Riding the Roller Coaster, presented by the school counselors, will teach you about the most typical mistakes most parents make when dealing with teens as well as help you separate what is normal adolescent behavior and what may need more immediate attention. There will also be a discussion of resilience and how parents can teach resiliency to their children. October 4th – 6:30pm in the media center.
How to Communicate with Teenagers – the language of an adolescent is not the same as the language of an adult. How do you effectively communicate with an adolescent so that they truly understand your message and be able to incorporate your rules and guidelines. You will have a chance to experience some common miscommunication battles that occur between parents and teens and learn strategies as to overcome those issues without damaging parent/student relationships. You will continue to learn strategies that help you teach resiliency to teenagers. October 18th 6:30pm in the media center
You are Not Alone – this presentation will be led by the Crisis Mobile Team who works in conjunction with Anne Arundel County police. They will highlight Anne Arundel Country resources for families in crisis and how to access them. You never know when and if you will need their services so it is nice to know ahead of time what is available. The services provided to families at an early age often prevent emergency services as students get older. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to hear what’s going on in your community. November 1st – 6:30pm in the gym.

EMERGENCY DRILLS-During each school year, various drills are conducted at every school to ensure that staff and students are prepared in the event of an emergency. These drills include monthly fire/evacuation drills.In addition five drills with scenarios developed by the school system’s Office of School Security and based upon various possible emergency scenarios are done each year. These include, but are not limited to: evacuation for natural gas emergencies; shelter for tornado and earthquake; shelter for outside hazardous materials release; lockout for danger outside of the school building, reverse evacuation back into the school for students and staff outside; and lockdown for a person with a weapon inside of the school. These drills are discussed with staff prior to the drill, evaluated once the drill is complete. In some cases, the drills may be discussed with students before they take place.
Severna Park Middle School is equipped with a video camera system. It covers selected interior and exterior public portions of the building and grounds. It is NOT monitored constantly, but it is monitored during emergency situations. During certain events, when the safety or security of students may be in question, authorized personnel from local, state, or federal police or fire emergency units may be given access to view images projected on the camera system. If you have any questions about the system, you should call the Supervisor of School Security at 410-222-5083.
