Safety Training Video Information

Posted on: December 5, 2022

TSD Parents:

Today I am sharing the Talawanda Safety Video with you.  We wanted to share this information to keep our families in the loop regarding safety and security measures in our district and community.  The video does deal with safety and emergency issues that may be upsetting to some viewers, so be aware.


The safety of our students and staff are among the most important issues that we face in our district.  Talawanda leaders take great care in working closely with law enforcement (and other emergency personnel) to do everything we can to educate our staff and students, and become prepared for any type of emergency event.  We are fortunate to have great relationships and networks locally and in the region, and also a school emergency director at the BCESC that we work with regularly.


The district level safety team provides guidance for safety training in our schools.  They also stay current on the events, trends, and experiences that have occurred around the country in communities and schools that span from actual intruder situations, cyber events, and even hoaxes.  


The video below outlines that work. 

Although this particular video has a high school focus, safety education and training occurs at all schools and levels, is always designed to be developmentally appropriate for the audience, as well as designed for the geography of each school facility and site.
