Safety is a Priority

  • Safety is a priority and we believe in continuous improvement to reassure students, staff, and parents that schools are generally very safe places. These groups and the community all play an important part in promoting a secure school environment.

    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.
