School Safety and Lock Down Drills

Hello Mesa Public Schools community,

Student and staff safety is our top priority. After a comprehensive analysis of school safety protocol, there is an important change in our lockdown drill procedure.

Schools will increase the number of lockdown drills (shelter-in-place) from two to four. Unlike previous years, these drills will not be pre-announced. This provides a more accurate examination of the school’s lockdown protocols, and helps ensure students and staff act appropriately in the case of a real emergency.

Although the date and time of these drills is up to the discretion of the school principal, one drill must be completed in the first two weeks of each semester (August and January). Following each drill, we will communicate with parents that a lockdown drill occurred.

We continue to analyze our security procedures to ensure our campuses remain safe for students and staff.

Thank you for supporting Mesa Public Schools.

Estimada comunidad de las Escuelas Públicas de Mesa,

La seguridad de los estudiantes y el personal es nuestra máxima prioridad. Después de un análisis exhaustivo del protocolo de seguridad escolar, tenemos un cambio importante en nuestro procedimiento de simulacro de cierre de seguridad.

Las escuelas aumentarán el número de simulacros (refugio en el lugar) de dos a cuatro. A diferencia de años anteriores, estos simulacros no serán anunciados previamente. Esto proporciona una evaluación más precisa de los protocolos de cierre de seguridad de la escuela y ayuda a garantizar que los estudiantes y el personal actúen de forma adecuada en caso de una emergencia real.

Aunque la fecha y hora de estos simulacros depende del criterio del director de la escuela, se debe completar un simulacro en las primeras dos semanas de cada semestre (agosto y enero). Después de cada simulacro, comunicaremos con los padres que ocurrió un simulacro de cierre de seguridad.

Seguimos analizando nuestros procedimientos de seguridad para garantizar que nuestras escuelas permanezcan seguras para los estudiantes y el personal.


Gracias por apoyar a las Escuelas Públicas de Mesa.
