schoolsafetyWith the recent focus on school safety, the staff at Shoshone School District has spent time reviewing our current safety plan and procedures. With a few minor changes, we feel confident that our plan provides a high degree of safety and security for both students and staff.

As a parent of a Shoshone student(s), you can help us by following school procedures for dropping off, picking up, and visiting/volunteering during school hours. Please take a few minutes and review the following procedures: 

  1. Please remember that the front entrance of the school is the ONLY entrance that parents/visitors should use. All other doors are locked during school hours.
  1. All visitors MUST check in at the M.S./H.S. or elementary office. All visitors must sign the visitor’s log and wear a visitor’s clearance pass. This will let our staff know that you have checked in at the office and are cleared to enter.
  1. During arrival and departure times, parents who wish to wait with or for their child/children MUST remain in the lobby by the main front doors. If there is an immediate need for you to speak with a staff member, you may request this at the M.S./H.S. or elementary office.
  1. Unauthorized adults are not permitted on the playground during recess times. This includes when students first arrive at school. Only parents/visitors that have a clearance pass are allowed to be on the playground.

All Shoshone staff are responsible for monitoring these procedures and will re-direct parents/visitors to the office when necessary. Please understand that student safety remains a top priority for our school and we will continue our efforts toward making Shoshone School District both a safe place for children to learn, as well as a welcome place for families to be involved with their child’s/children’s education.
