Safety at Southmont Schools

The tragedy in Florida reminds us all of the importance of safety and security in schools. We want to assure our families that each of our schools has an updated school safety plan that has been created and reviewed in collaboration with local law enforcement. The members of our staff have been trained on the specifics of this plan, and we conduct periodic drills to ensure that everyone knows their role during a crisis. Our School Resource Officer (SRO), Jennifer Griffith, leads this training. Our schools also have specific protocol for entry to the building, and we appreciate the understanding of our parents as we enforce these protocols for the safety of our children. As we tell our students, if you see something, say something to school officials so we are all vigilant. The safety of our students remains our highest priority.
