Safety & Security

The role of Safety and Security is to create a safe environment for students to be able to come to school and feel safe and only have to worry about attending school.

Safety and Security has a role when it comes to:

  • transportation safety to and from school (directing traffic and crosswalk safety)

  • supervision of all school functions during and after school

  • insuring that all school grounds and buildings are working properly

  • partnership with the community police department to provide an extra layer of protection and service to students.
