Safety Program

It is the policy of the school board to take every reasonable precaution for the safety of students, employees, visitors, patrons and all other persons having business with schools in the division. The board believes that safety is important to everyone concerned with the schools, not only as a protective measure during school hours, but also as an instructional means of developing an appropriate mode of behavior to minimize undesirable and unplanned occurrences.

Editor's Note
For implementation see the division's "Safe School Plan."
