Safety Practices in Schools
We have worked to strengthen our school safety practices to ensure safe learning environments. We have implemented a buzzer system for more secure front entrances and practice secure entrance protocols during the school day. We ask that parents understand that there may be a delay when trying to enter our schools, but this practice is recommended by law enforcement officials and represents best practice in school safety. Securing the school perimeter during the school day is designed to support student safety.
We have partnered with our local authorities to develop protocols that are responsive to what has been learned in previous school attacks. The ALICE training protocol is an essential part of our AAPS emergency plan.
