Safety and Security Measures
Student and staff safety is the number one priority for all schools in the Lyon County School District (LCSD). Administrators and staff members work diligently every day with students and families to provide a positive, safe and respectful learning environment. Each school in the LCSD has created a comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan that has been specifically designed for that school by the school’s safety team, and includes appropriate measures for a variety of emergency situations. Additionally, these plans have been reviewed and approved by local law enforcement and emergency response agencies. Further, each school conducts safety drills to practice these safety measures on a regular basis, often times with the assistance of the aforementioned agencies. Finally, the LCSD is currently installing the Audio Enhancement SAFE System in every classroom in the district. This system includes a camera and a silent alarm that can discretely notify the office of any emergency situation. This coupled with the facility safety enhancements being performed now and into the summer will make our schools safer than they’ve ever been. We encourage community members, parents and students to contact school staff immediately to report all safety concerns and to request any needed support. The LCSD is grateful for the efforts of community members, first responding agencies and staff members in protecting our most valuable asset, our students.
