Dog B.O.N.E.S. Therapy Dogs to Visit on May 3rd

Dog_BONES_patch.jpg

On Friday, May 3rd, therapy dogs will visit Parker at 1:30 PM.

Two Black Lab therapy dogs will be kept on three-foot leashes in an enclosed space. The purpose for the visit is so members of the Senior Class can interact with them, in an effort to relieve stress before the Senior Exhibitions. An email will be sent to see how many of the Seniors are interested, and then we will then schedule time slots for them. If the Seniors enjoy the dogs, we will plan to have them come back again during Gateway Week.

In terms of students with allergies and fears, they will not have to interact with the dogs at all. The dogs will be in the building, but they will be right near the door so that many students will not even see them come in, or leave. These dogs are insured through Dog B.O.N.E.S. which is a service dog organization.

Megan Harvey is a Junior at Parker who spends a lot of time with animals outside of school. She wanted to bring therapy dogs to Parker because she knows how much animals have helped her, and believes they will benefit the Parker community. If you have any questions, you can contact Megan at megan.harvey@theparkerschool.org. If you do not feel comfortable contacting a student, you may also contact School Counselor Sheila Kelly at skelly@theparkerschool.org. If there are a lot of questions and there is a demand, we will hold an information session.

Thank you!
