Following the recent events in Florida, Provo City School District immediately began to re-evaluate the procedures and practices that take place in our schools. We take the safety and well-being of our students and staff extremely seriously. The following list outlines many of the steps the district takes to be prepared for these serious situations:

This list is a snapshot of some of the work being done in Provo City School District to ensure the safety and security of our students and employees. Additionally, the district is seeking new ways to work more closely with local agencies such as Provo City, United Way, Centro Hispano, and Wasatch Mental Health, to name a few. We are coordinating with Congressman John Curtis and Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi to proactively identify ways to improve school safety. The district is actively involved in the creation of a new community organization, Communities That Care, which consists of agencies throughout Provo that are working together to support and strengthen the well-being of Provo students.

Provo City School District is committed to doing all that it can to preserve and improve the safety of students, staff, and patrons. We encourage all Provo community members to keep their eyes and ears open and to report any concern you might have to local law enforcement or district/school officials. The reports will be taken seriously.
