The Manhattan Beach Unified School District continues to keep the safety of students and staff as its highest priority by utilizing multiple safety measures already implemented throughout the District that help us provide safe, secure, and positive learning environments.
Here are some safeguards we have in place:
We all know that unfortunate and unplanned events can occur. Please know that the priority in an emergency will always be to assure the safety of students and staff. In case of an emergency, we are prepared to provide students, staff, parents, and the school community with timely, accurate, and honest information.
Information – especially rumors – spreads quickly. Even one inaccurate email, text message, or social media post can spark rumors, create unnecessary panic, or make a real emergency even worse. In case of an emergency, we ask that you remember to look for accurate information from your student’s school administrator or the District. We deliver emergency messages via email, text, call, and social media. The District and schools also promote “See or Hear Something, Say Something” among parents/guardians, students, and staff, and encourage everyone to speak up.
How can you help?
In an emergency, parents and families have a role in helping to keep the school community safe. Because phone lines may be busy or impacted, it will be important to keep them open for use by local safety officials. Also, if the school is on lockdown, we may not be able to allow anyone on or off campus immediately. Here’s how families can help:
By working together, we can be effective partners in creating the safest school environments possible.
