Building a Culture of Safety
Safety at our Schools
We work hard as a District to prepare for and prevent emergency situations, and we are encouraged by statistics that show schools are the safest places for children. Schools are the heart of a community and must often serve as the linchpin 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 for all of us to Think Safe. We invite you to join us on this mission to build and maintain schools that are welcoming, secure, and prepared. If you have students in Canyons District, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the information found here and discuss it at home. Please 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. We also welcome your questions and ideas, which can be emailed to email@example.com. And, please remember if you see or hear something that makes you feel unsafe, report it to your school principal or through the anonymous crisis and safety tipline, SafeUT.
