Coaches at Kankakee Valley are required to take several courses to enable them to coach.  One of the courses required is Sudden Cardiac Arrest!  While we all know that our first responders are required to know CPR, it is true that all of our teachers have to be CPR certified as well.  This is a great example of the type of people we have looking out for our kids.  Deputy Hale we appreciate your efforts to make our athletes better football players, but we appreciate your service to protect our community even more!  Congratulations for your recognition!
