Safety


November 06, 2018

Dear MCS Parents & Stakeholders,

In light of the recent false social media postings, it is important to keep in mind that the safety of our students is always our highest priority. False information, which has been posted on social media is causing anxiety to our students, parents, and community. We ask that you help us control these posts by speaking to your child regarding the dissemination of false information on social media that could impede a swift response to an actual situation. MCS Communications Office will release official information to parents and the community in case of an actual emergency.

Muncie Community Schools has multiple safety protocols that are exercised daily, and our schools have school safety Crisis Management Plans that are reviewed and revised regularly. There are ten staff members trained as School Safety Specialists throughout the district.

Communication and collaboration among schools, parents, and the community are critical to ensure that our students continue to view their schools as safe, caring, and supportive environments. School safety is everyone’s responsibility and we encourage you to report suspicious or concerning behavior through the following options:

Sincerely,

Steve Edwards
Emergency Manager
Muncie Community Schools
