The safety and security of our students and staff are our top priority at WPSD. We have a Safety and Security Coordinator, three campus monitors, and three School Resource Officers (SROs) shared across the district to keep our schools as safe as possible.
We recently received a grant of almost $335,000 from the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management which will assist us in improving security throughout our buildings. These include:
IN CASE OF SCHOOL CRISIS
What to expect in the event of a school emergency or crisis situation.
Please understand staff may not be able to answer phones during a crisis situation.
The ability to pick up your child(ren) during a crisis may be limited due to emergency vehicles and/or safety reasons.
Our schools practice a variety of emergency drills throughout the year so that students and staff members know how to respond in the event of a real crisis.
Emergency Response Procedures
Emergency Response Procedures are standard, clear directives that may be implemented across a variety of emergency situations.
Situation: Conditions inside are safer than outside, such as police activity nearby or wildlife on school property.
Shelter in Place
Situation: Conditions exist where students and staff are safer in a sheltered specified area until cleared. Examples:
Situation: Conditions outside are safer than inside, such as a fire or gas leak.
Situation: Conditions exist that pose an immediate threat to students and staff.
Students and staff use A.L.I.C.E. Procedures - alicetraining.com
In every situation, buildings outline a reunification process that aims at systematically bringing parents and students back together in the event of an emergency.
Connecting parents with their children is our highest priority!
Notification: As soon as possible, the following notification systems will be utilized by WPSD:

Each school has its own plan that revolves around four components: Response, Recovery, Mitigation, and Preparation. Every year, the crisis response plans are reviewed and updated as necessary.
