The tragic events at Douglas High School in Florida give us all reason to pause, reflect and question. We share in the grief of that community and offer our prayers for their recovery, resilience and restoration.
Safety is always at the forefront of our minds here in Cabarrus County Schools. We are committed to providing our students and staff with a safe learning and working environment. We work closely with our partners in law enforcement to investigate and assess threats to our school community. This partnership also provides us with the ability to have school resource officers in all of our schools, which we are extremely grateful to have.
Additionally, each of our schools has a current safety plan established, and our district conducts safety drills and additional training throughout the year to ensure that our staff and students know what to do in the event of an emergency or crisis situation.
Our district employs certified and trained counselors, psychologists and social workers who provide social and emotional support and counseling to students and connect them and their families with appropriate resources. If you are looking for resources to help you speak to your children about the recent spate of school shootings, visit our district's School Health page.
