That way you can rest assured that you will know about any problems if they arise. If you don't hear from the school, it means your child is getting along just fine. * Plan a special treat for your child's return. When your child returns at the end of the day, you will want to spend time with him or her. Plan a special treat based on your child's interest. It might be a cookies - and - milk break, a walk outside or a time to sing and read together. Just remember that you child will be tired and excited after the first days of school, so don't plan anything too demanding. * Give yourself permission to care. Don't tell yourself you "shouldn't" feel the wayyou do. Let yourself worry a little and feel sad. Missing your child and worrying about him or her shows you care.

Meet Proof of the Difference Dobson -- iiii -- ii ii -- -- Kenneth Banks, another satisfied customer of Dobson Cellular Systems. -- JH  -- -- by Texas Attorney General Dan Morales SCHOOLS AND POLICE: PARTNERS AGAINST CRIME Imagine this. Two gangs have a street fight and are arrested by local police. The next day, the rival gang members sit in the same classroom. Not only might teachers and school ad- ministrators be unaware of the ex- plosive situation, the police are prohibited by law from informing them. It used to be that way in our state. An outdated law prevented law enforcement authorities from reporting to a school the informa- tion that one or more students had committed a serious crime and could pose a threat to the school environmenL A New Ianv Last year, the state legisla- ture passed a law amending the Code of Criminal Procedure. The law, which took effect September 1, 1993, states that law enforce- ment agencies could inform school superintendents of the arrest or detention of one of their students for a serious or violent crime. But somewhere between the passage and the implementation of the bill, the intent of the law was misinterpreted. Some people had the mistaken impression that the law was meant only to allow the release of the name of a student to the schools- the nature of the crime or offense had to remain confidential. Knowledge of the names of the students-and nothing more- would be of minimal help to super- intendents in their struggle to pro- vide a safe environment for their students. In response to a request from the Nueces County District Attorney, my office issued an At- torney General's Opinion to clear up any confusion about the matter. School officials have the right to know the names of stu- dents arrested for serious crimes and/or offenses. Furthermore, police can tell educators the na- ture and severity of those crimes. Armed with this knowledge, teachers and school ad- ministrators should have a better chance of defusing potentially ex- plosive situations. I For Kenneth Banks of Pampa, his cellular phone has always been a timesaver. Fortunately for him on April 30, 1993 it was a lifesaver as well. Kenneth's Story. With clients for his landscape maintenance business scattered all along the route, the short drive from Pampa to Canadian is one he's made many times before. But this day, halfway there, a cold, dull pain began to shoot through his chest and arms. Thank goodness his difference-making 'business partner' -- a cellular phone and service from Dobson Cellular -- was in the front seat with him. "1 knew I was having a heart attack, so I pulled over and called 91 I," said Kenneth. "An ambulance was there in about ten minutes. Later, my doctor confirmed what I already knew: the cellular phone saved my life. " Affordable? You Bet Your Life! For Kenneth, his cellular phone -- and the peace of mind that comes with it --is worth every penny. "Before getting my phone, I used to think about the loss of time and business. Now, I think of the loss my family would feel if not for my Dobson cellular service." Real convenience and confidence. Now more than ever, you and your family need the Difference that only Dobson Cellular can make. TheDifferevceMahar. DOBSON Want to know more?

Informed teachers can take steps to forestall further violence. Educators can be on the lookout for trouble, monitor hallways, and intervene by mediat- ing between rival students.
