Safety & Security: What you need to know in the first week
With school starting, we want to provide our students, staff and parents about some important reminders about safety and security.
Safety is everyone’s responsibility
All of us play a role in the security of our schools and buildings. Everyone needs to actively participate in safety efforts, including learning procedures and taking part in drills, to keep our students, staff and community safe.
Know the SRP
The Standard Response Protocol provides us with the common language used during emergencies at all of our schools and facilities. If you don’t know the difference between Lock Out and Lock Down, watch our video.
Wear your ID or visitor badge
That wonderful Douglas County School District ID badge or visitor badge should not be stuck at the bottom of your purse or wallet. When everyone has their identification displayed, it is easier to determine if a stranger is an intruder.
See something, say something
If someone is acting strangely or something seems out of place, talk to your principal, security or law enforcement.
The best defense is a good offense. Keeping your eyes open can prevent tragedy.
