Time to Recharge
Can you believe that we are almost two months into the 2023-2024 school year? Yes, we can see that the seasons are changing and the air has a crisp edge to it. But as a Minnesotan, almost nothing says, "FALL!" like the annual MEA Break.
For this time, I would like to wish you some time to rest and recharge. I hope you have time to do something you love and to spend time with people you love. Embrace the break and we will look forward to seeing students and staff on Monday, October 23.
Emergency Response Teams Focus on School-based Safety & Security
In Roseville Area Schools, we know that each student who walks into our schools is somebody's somebody. It’s our job to keep our schools as safe as possible. With that in mind, we have the District Safety and Security Team. The purpose of the District Safety and Security Team is to create safe and secure schools, ensure alignment in safety and security efforts across our schools, and support site-based school safety.
In addition to the District Safety and Security Team, each school has an Emergency Response Team made up of staff in a range of roles, who also have specific safety and security duties. Each Emergency Response Team meets on a regular basis and is responsible for:
Developing and revising building emergency plans and procedures
Conducting safety drills
Responding to crisis situations
Conducting risk or threat assessments
Creating reunification plans
Partnering with the District Crisis and Consultation Support Team
In addition to the school-based Emergency Response Team, Roseville Area Schools also has the following security measures in place:
Sign in/Sign out procedures
School Resource Officers at RAMS and RAHS
Student Support Teams
Anonymous Reporting Systems
Beyond protecting our students from tragedies, we also take a broader view of student safety. We know that students who feel loved, supported, and connected at school are less likely to participate in acts of violence. In Roseville Area Schools, students are welcomed, encouraged, accepted, and celebrated for their differences. Bullying and harassment have no place and our students have access to high-quality, nutritious school meals and safe rides to and from school and school-sponsored events.
Finally, our schools are places where outstanding teachers and staff seek to make positive and meaningful connections with students as individuals and to work with you, our families, to determine how our schools can best serve your children. We encourage you to speak with your child and encourage them to report to their principal or a trusted adult anything that makes them feel unsafe or concerns them.
