The Socorro Independent School District is conducting School Safety Summits for students, parents, and community members in all of the district’s high school feeder areas.
The SISD Police Services Emergency Management and Guidance and Counseling departments are sharing the district’s safety procedures and emergency operations plan with SISD stakeholders at each high school.
Participants are learning valuable information on how to help Keep SISD Safe, Emergency Operations Plan, Standard Response Protocol (SRP), mental health safety protocols, and other safety activities. In addition, safety protocols for lockout, evacuation, lockdown, shelter and hold will be discussed.
“In today’s climate, we all have to be the eyes and ears of the district,” said Superintendent José Espinoza, Ed.D. at the Eastlake area School Safety Summit. “Students, parents, the community… everyone needs to be involved. It takes a team effort to make sure our students are safe.” Ann and Karl Cokenour were happy they attended the Eastlake summit. Their daughter Kayce, 7, attends Dr. Sue Shook Elementary School.
“They were able to answer all our questions about what protocols are in place,” Ann Cokenour said. “It was good to see all the different branches of law enforcement here. We now know the procedures, what to look for and what to do if anything were to happen. It makes me feel better that the school district is so proactive.”
