Our school has a detailed emergency response program that outlines teams of people who will take charge in just about any emergency that was created with the town police and fire departments, and head nurse. We practice lockdown drills on a regular basis. A unarmed officer is stationed daily at the high school located a quarter mile away and has quick response time to our middle school when needed. ID's, video surveillance, buzz in doors are all a daily part of our school.
My school administrators enforce a zero tolerance policy. They work closely with staff, students, families and people in the community. This has had a positive impact on our community as a whole, even promoting our school to conduct a fundraiser to build a well for a village in Africa.
