Schools safety

Students entering an elementary school

We take the safety of our students and staff very seriously and we believe being prepared and having processes in place are the keys to successfully managing every type of emergency, whether it’s a medical or a safety situation.


We believe it’s important to keep our parents and staff informed of safety-related incidents at their children’s schools.  Our school administrators, response teams and communications teams work together to make sure all impacts on students and staff are communicated with the school community–whether it’s a change in the student’s school schedule or transportation plan or how the staff offered support resources for an upsetting experience.

Please be sure your emergency contact information is updated with your student’s school.
