Welcome to Safety & Security

  • Our highly-trained safety and security staff monitor, protect, and respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our paramount duty is to help create a safe learning environment where each child can thrive.

    Safety and security staff support and assist in the training of all district staff to be prepared to respond to natural- or human-caused emergencies. We work with our communications and school staff to inform families about emergencies in a number of ways as soon as we can with as much information as possible.

    One of our district goals is to reduce out-of-school suspensions, but we will always remove a student from school when the safety of other students or staff is at risk. We are committed to creating a safe environment in every school. We put a high priority on building relationships with students. Our safety and security officers are proactive and help keep our district’s promise to know every student by name, strength, and need.
