We will build off of last year as we work to provide a safe environment for all students. Actions that compromise the safety of our school will not be tolerated. We will again be partnering with KCK police in having drug dogs in our building throughout the year. Fighting will not be tolerated and will again lead to a 10 day out of school suspension. A 2nd fight will result in expulsion from school. All of these steps are taken to ensure our students and families feel safe. Turner students, staff, and families deserve it!
