Mr. Cottle: School Safety

School Safety Training

The protection and safe-keeping of all students is our #1 priority. That is why all Bethel School District staff will take part in school safety training on October 10th, a no-school day for educator training.

This workshop will make sure our staff members have a shared understanding of how to respond in emergency situations, especially a worst-case scenario of an armed intruder on campus. It is sad that there is a need to adequately prepare our staff for such a remote possibility, but we believe it is better to train for a worst-case scenario and never use that training than to sit back and just hope a life-threatening event never happens.

Every school in our district already practices fire drills, lockdowns, and earthquake drills. This training will add to our staff’s abilities to respond in extreme emergencies in order to keep students safe. Contact me, Brady Cottle, if you have any questions.
