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.
Shasta Middle School appreciates supportive parents and a community willing to be involved in our school. To become a volunteer at Shasta please fill out the School Involvement Information Sheet (SIIS) telling us how you would like to get involved. If your student is an incoming 6th grader, are new to the District, or have never filled out a background check, you will need to fill out the online Criminal History Verification of Volunteers with Bethel School District before you are able to volunteer at Shasta.
The background checks do not transfer from school to school. Even though one may have been completed for another school within Bethel, you will still need to fill one out for Shasta. If you filled out the SIIS at registration, but have not yet done the online background check, please do so as soon as possible.
We so appreciate you taking time out of your busy life, to support our students, staff, and school.
