School Safety

  • Tips for Reinforcing School Safety

    • Schools are safe places. Our school staff works with parents and public safety providers (police, fire, hospitals, etc.).
    • We all have a role in school safety. Be observant and let a school official know if you see or hear something that makes you feel uncomfortable, nervous, or frightened.
    • There is a difference between reporting, tattling, or gossiping. You can provide important information that may prevent harm either directly or anonymously by telling a school official what you know or hear.
    • Although there is no absolute guarantee that something bad will never happen, it is important to understand the difference between the possibility of something happening and probability that it will.
    • Violence is never a solution to personal problems. Students can be part of the positive solution by participating in anti-violence programs at school, learning mediation skills, and seeking help from an adult if they, or a peer, are struggling with anger, depression, or other emotions they cannot control. Open communication between home and school is critical to the safety and well-being of our students. Let us know if you have a concern or question about school policies or student safety.
