The recent events at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas once again highlight the real concerns we all have around school safety. The safety of our students and staff is a serious responsibility and of paramount concern to all of us.
Each of our schools maintains a safety plan reviewed and revised annually—all schools in the district conduct periodic safety drills. Our schools are equipped with security buzzer entry systems and each building has a new high-tech security system that includes numerous cameras. Our schools have safety teams that include School Resource Officers as part of our approach to keeping students and staff safe.
Each crisis is unique. The best preparation for an emergency is careful planning, practice, execution, and evaluation. Our safety plans and related training have been designed in partnership with experts in the field and set a strong foundation for crisis prevention, intervention, and response.
