School safety is an active and ongoing process. We are continuing to evaluate our current safety protocols and plans at all of our schools, and we are working closely with law enforcement.
One initiative we are taking is further educating students about their role in school safety. All of our schools are talking to students about safety and showing them a video about reporting threats and the consequences of improper social media posts or statements. View the video being shown to students.
We all have a role in school safety, and we need the help of our parents and caregivers. We’re asking parents to discuss school safety with their children and let them know if they see something unusual or have a concern, they should let an adult know. Tips can also be reported anonymously through Crimestoppers by calling 1-877-903-7867. Social media posts about threats should not be shared.
Every report or comment made about a potential threat is taken seriously and is investigated thoroughly. Our School System will not tolerate comments, messages or social media posts that could be viewed as a threat, even as a joke or with no intent to cause harm. There will be very serious consequences for any student who makes a threat. Law enforcement will be contacted and disciplinary action will be taken.
The safety of our students is always the top priority in our School System. We are dedicated to doing everything we can to make our schools as safe as possible for our students and staff.
