Safety & Security

Welcome to the Stafford County Public Schools' Department of Safety & Security! Our team is dedicated to ensuring the safety and well-being of all students and staff within our educational community.

We work proactively to uphold the highest safety standards set by the Virginia Board of Education. In collaboration with state and local emergency agencies, law enforcement, and health authorities, we plan and prepare responses to potential threats, aligning our safety procedures with local emergency preparedness plans.

Our department provides comprehensive safety measures, including full-time Sheriff's Resource Officers at high schools, designated officers for middle and elementary schools, and daily D.A.R.E. classes conducted by deputies. We've equipped all schools with detailed crisis emergency plans, regularly updated and practiced through response drills, covering various critical incident scenarios.

To ensure restricted access, visitors are required to check in at the main office for identification badges, and only monitored exterior doors can be accessed from the outside. During emergencies, our schools follow carefully outlined protocols tailored to each specific situation, considering factors like proximity, severity, and impact, from heightened alerts to lockdowns or evacuations.

Your child's safety is our utmost priority! Thank you for entrusting us with their well-being.
