School Safety


Many of you may already be aware of the devastating school shooting in a Connecticut Elementary School this morning.  We want to reassure you of the following steps that we take here at Salt Creek to prepare for the unthinkable.

First and foremost, the incident in Connecticut is a tragic event and our hearts go out to the families affected.  As always, student safety is our #1 priority.  We have a closed campus where any visitors MUST enter and sign in the office in order to gain access onto our campus.  We have a School Safety Plan in place where we practice different types of drills monthly.  It is a District requirement that we practice Lock-down Procedures twice a year. We have a drill scheduled for next week as our previous December drill was postponed.  We will take the knowledge of this incident and reflect on our own safety practices to see how we can improve.  We have our School Safe Plan in the office that was developed with the input of parents, staff, and law enforcement, and you are welcome to review it anytime.

Please feel free to call the school if you have any further questions.

  1. Thank you Dr. Winters for sending out this message. After I heard the awful news I immediately thought what does Salt Creek in emergencies and what is their plan. Thank you for letting us know where to find all of that information if desired.
    Best,

  2. Good Day Mr. Winters and Salt Creek Family,
    Having reviewed the School Safety Plan and assisted in its revision in 2010 I can attest there is one in place. However, after the most recent incident I do believe it needs a hard look to ensure that it addresses the more radical actions that a line shooter or team of shooters may take. I look forward to participating in the upcoming safety plan meetings.
    Thank you for your leadership in this matter.
