Your Child – and School Safety

School safety tips from All-Guard Alarm Systems

School safety tips from All-Guard Alarm Systems

You have regular fire and emergency drills at home, and taught your children to shout “Stranger Danger” if they are approached by someone they don’t know. However, protecting their children from acts of violence at school is the main cause of worry for most parents.

Outside of the home, school is still the safest place for your child. Nevertheless, there are steps you can take to make your child’s school an ever safer place.

Visitors Check with the school if there is a sign-in procedure in place for all visitors, and if visitors are monitored during their visit as well as required to wear visitor badges. Also, check how the school handles unwanted visitors.

Access Find out if there are any unmonitored doors that will allow outsiders to access any of the school buildings unannounced. And find out if those doors can be locked from the outside while still allowing your child to get out quickly and safely in case of an emergency.

Cameras Check if there are security cameras inside and outside the school buildings, and if so, ask how the cameras are monitored.

Emergency Plan Ask if there are emergency plans and lock-down procedures in place, and how the procedures are communicated to teachers and students. Check how often they hold training sessions and emergency drills and how their effectiveness is evaluated.

Communication Find out how the school plans on communicating with law enforcement and fire and safety agencies and what the procedure is for notifying parents in case of an emergency. Also, ask how you, as a parent, can notify the school of suspicious activities and if there are any hotlines and tip lines in place.

Ask Questions Ask your child if there are places at school that make him or her feel uneasy and why, ask if he or she has overheard any of the students making inappropriate comments, and ask if he or she feels comfortable reporting any concerns to a teacher. Your child may be your best source for understanding and improving school safety.
