The Underwood School District and the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department are excited to announce a partnership that will provide a School Resource Officer at Underwood School for the 2022-23 school year. At the Underwood School District Board meeting on Monday June 13, the Underwood School Board approved an agreement with the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office for a School Resource Officer (SRO). The SRO will provide an added layer of protection to current safety protocols in place, as well as build relationships with the students, staff and visitors to the Underwood School. “I am excited for the partnership with the Underwood School with the addition of the SRO. I want to thank the Otter Tail County Board of Commissioners as well as the Administration and Underwood School Board Members for their support of this added position. School safety remains a priority and the Sheriff’s Office will continue to work with the Underwood School to ensure that we are providing the best service possible to keep all students, staff and visitors safe.” -- Sheriff Barry Fitzgibbons. Outgoing Superintendent, Dave Kuehn and incoming Superintendent, Jeff Wilson, echo the comments of Sheriff Fitzgibbons regarding the high priority of the school district and the OTC Sheriff's Department to provide the best possible plans and resources to ensure student and staff safety at Underwood School. The school district is very excited about this opportunity to partner with the OTC Sheriff's Department and appreciate the continued support from Sheriff Fitzgibbons, his staff and the Otter Tail County Board of Commissioners.
