The safety of our children is ever present on our minds. Students participate in monthly safety drills and safety precautions are a focus with students and staff. We are proud to have a resource officer frequently present during arrival and dismissal times.
We welcome families and community members into our school and ask that you buzz-in at our main entrance, inform us of who you are and the purpose of your visit. Please check-in with our office, sign-in, and wear a visitor sticker while you are in our building. You are invited to volunteer in your child's classroom, chaperone on a field trip, and eat lunch with your child. We do require criminal background checks to be a classroom volunteer or chaperone.
In addition, we have a resource officer on staff at our building each day. Officers will support us in safety measures throughout the school and during the practice of our monthly drills.

Safety Drill Information
Students and staff participate in monthly safety drills addressing weather events, fires, bus evacuations, intruders and other threats. We teach and practice a uniform classroom response according to each drill with consistent language from the Standard Response Protocol(SRP).
Union Township Schools Safety Response Plan: One County-One Protocol
Posted in each of our classroom is the SRP classroom poster with guidance of evacuation routes and shelter areas.
Communication with families of any emergency is a priority and you can expect information via text and/or e-mail. Please make sure we have updated contact information.
