School Safety and Security Advancement Project
At St. Joseph Catholic Schools the safety and security of our students and staff has always been an incredibly important part of everything we do. While we are always working behind the scenes to increase our security measures, the heinous and senseless life-claiming act of violence, in the most recent, of many, school-focused violent attacks, reminded us how important it is to let all of you know exactly what we have been working on.
We strive to be proactive in our day-to-day approach to school safety, and we try to quietly and seamlessly implement any updates or changes in our systems. We believe the silent rollout model is a vital part of our overall safety and security plan.
Given the seemingly never-ending horrific events that have been traumatizing our nation, we thought it would be a very good time for us to update you on the proactive approach we take each day at St. Joe to hopefully ease your minds. We hope that this overview of our School Safety and Security Advancement Project will show you how diligent we always have been and how relentlessly focused we are to continue to improve the safety and security for every student and staff member.
