We believe students learn best in positive and safe environments where they feel connected, heard, and known. School emergency preparedness is a process that involves staff, parents, students, school security professionals, school resource officers (SROs), emergency responders, and the community. We encourage you to learn more about safety in our schools so we can work together in providing a safe and respectful school environment for all.

Planning Ahead for Safety
Our staff are trained and prepared to educate students to be responsible and safe at school. Additionally, our district is prepared to respond to a variety of situations including weather related emergencies, a school or building disaster, or another threatening situation. We work with community partners in creating a safe and caring environment for all students.
If an emergency or other urgent situation occurs during the school day, we will attempt to notify parents or guardians using the contact information provided on student registration forms. It is important that all emergency contact information is up to date.
Safe Practices at School
We practice regular safety drills with students following the school district's standard response protocol (SRP) and encourage all parents and guardians to be informed of these practices.
Supporting Your Child
Resources are available to support students and families. Talk with your child's teacher or the building principal if you have concerns.
Our commitment to safety includes providing safe school environment for students, staff, and visitors.
