Safety at our SchoolsWe work hard as a District to prepare for and prevent emergency situations, and we’re encouraged by statistics that show schools are still among the safest places for children. Reports of bullying and victimization at the nation’s schools are on the decline. Nevertheless, schools are the heart of a community, and must often serve as the lynchpin of a community’s response to an array of emergencies. This is where a “safety-first” mindset and emergency-preparedness pay off, and why it’s important that all of us be vigilant. Below is detailed information about some of the steps Canyons District has taken, and will continue to take, to maintain healthy, safe learning environments.
We encourage families to familiarize themselves with this information and discuss it at home. If you have children in one of our schools, tell your child that the most important thing to do in an emergency is to follow the directions of their teachers and school staff. It’s important to reassure them and let them know that you have confidence in the training that school staff have received.
