Supts On! – April 4, 2018

Gibbon Public Schools is taking a serious look at the protocols and procedures associated with School Safety. This serious look involves revisiting language and expectations for students and staff, reviewing information for different drills and our response to each situation, and setting the stage that being familiar with our safety protocols and procedures is the responsibility of our entire family. Students and Staff.

The past two weeks, representatives from our safety and crisis teams presented information on Gibbon Public School’s Standard Response Protocol to staff and secondary students. Our goal is to strengthen our approach to school safety while increasing the level of knowledge connected to the Standard Response Protocol. Reviewing information is the first step.

Practicing different scenarios will be our next step, and learning from each time we practice a drill will help us improve procedure and protocol. On March 28th,  we practiced our processes and protocols associated with a Tornado Drill. This went well and we are in the process of evaluating how we might improve our approach to this particular situation. In addition, we feel it is important to share with the community of Gibbon that our intention within the next few weeks is to take our students and staff through another drill focused on a different situation. Please be on the lookout for more information on our next drill.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or the school if you have any questions or suggestions on how we
might improve. School Safety is a family issue, and in Gibbon, #WeAreFamily.
