The U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools is pleased to announce the launch of the Safe and Supportive Schools Website. The Safe and Supportive Schools Website represents another step the OSDFS is taking to provide the technical assistance and expertise to keep our students safe. From this Website, state, district and school administrators; teachers; school support staff; and communities and families can find resources and support to develop rigorous measurement systems that assess school climate and implement and evaluate programmatic interventions.
To provide the utmost safe, clean, comfortable, and welcoming environment conducive to learning, interruptions to the classrooms will be kept to a minimum. For the safety of all students and staff and to limit interruptions, parents and visitors are required to enter the school office immediately upon arrival. Photo identification, such as a driver's license, may be requested by school officials for confirmation. Messages will be delivered to students if possible or students will be called to the office in an emergency. If applicable, persons legally prohibited from contacting your child will be asked to leave immediately. Visitors in the hallways and/or classrooms must have permission from the principal or his/her designee and an identification tag will be issued. The identification tag must be returned to the office after each visit. Former students or guests will not be permitted to visit classes with current students.
No registrant, as defined in KRS 17.500, nor sex offender from another state, shall be on school district property except with the advance written permission of the principal or the Board given after full disclosure of the person's status. A registrant who is the parent/legal guardian, or the person designated by the parent/legal guardian, to have access to a student must request and receive prior written permission from the principal to be on school property. Permission may be granted to:
- Pick up or drop off their child each day;
- Pick up their child who is injured or ill;
- Confer with school staff concerning academic, disciplinary, or placement issue; or
- Attend a school activity in which their child is a participant.
