Ensuring a safe and secure environment for our students and staff is a top priority at Provo City School District. By implementing cutting-edge measures, we have strived to create a nurturing atmosphere that allows everyone to thrive academically and personally. 

As we approach the end of another successful school year, we are delighted to share the remarkable safety efforts put in place throughout our district.

While we can’t divulge specific details or all information on Safety and Security strategies, we can share some exciting safety and security updates.

Communication is critical in any effective safety strategy, and we are proud to announce that all schools within our district now have two-way radios for seamless operations. These radios enable school-to-school and district-to-school communication, ensuring swift and efficient communications. 

With internal communications programming and instant communication plans firmly in place, we can respond promptly to any situation that may arise, guaranteeing the safety of our students and staff.

We’ve also strengthened our physical security. Our specialists have installed protective window filming to provide an additional layer of protection, reinforcing the safety of our school buildings. These films not only deter potential threats but also enhance our windows’ structural integrity, ensuring everyone’s well-being.

To further bolster our security measures, we have increased the number of exterior cameras to monitor contact points. These cameras serve as an extra set of vigilant eyes, enabling us to monitor any activity outside our school buildings closely. By doing so, we can swiftly address potential risks and maintain a secure environment for our students and staff.

Recognizing the importance of clear and effective communication during emergencies, we have updated our Public Address (PA) systems. These state-of-the-art systems ensure we relay important messaging quickly and clearly to everyone on our school premises. Prompt and accurate communication is crucial in times of crisis, and our updated PA systems allow us to do just that.

Looking ahead, we are committed to continuous improvement in our safety protocols. We aim to enhance vestibule lockdown procedures with future training on the horizon. We can further strengthen our overall safety preparedness by equipping our staff with the knowledge and skills necessary to handle such situations.

We encourage all parents to participate in our safety and security efforts actively. To learn more about the steps we have taken and the practices we have implemented, we invite you to read and watch our previous Safety and Security Campaign articles and videos. These resources provide valuable insights into how we protect, care for, and aid our students and staff, enabling them to reach their full potential in a safe and secure environment.

At Provo City School District, our students and staff’s safety and well-being are at the heart of everything we do. We’re proud of our Guidepost rating that ranks us high on safety both state and nationwide, and we plan to continue our efforts this summer.

By working together and staying informed, we can foster an environment where our students can grow, thrive, and self-actualize. Please visit our Safety and Security webpage for more information on Safety and Security efforts in our district.
