Keeping our schools safe requires continuous work and communication with our students, staff and families. In White Settlement ISD, we evaluate our safety plans and procedures and practice emergency drills regularly. We make adjustments and are always strengthening our preparations and possible responses to crises.
Controlled entries, video cameras, canine units, emergency notifications and more are important tools we utilize. Our students and community are a powerful part of keeping our schools safe.
WSISD has an online TipLine for reporting suspicious behavior, threats, bullying, drug and alcohol possession, thoughts of suicide or self-harm, and more. We encourage our students and the community, if you See Something, Say Something. The TipLine is available through the WSISD website as well as on Canvas for our students. When you have questions about what is happening in school, seek information from school principals.
If a crisis occurs at your school, factual information will be delivered to you at the contact information you have provided. It is our promise that whenever a safety situation arises, we will communicate with you as soon as facts are available. Additional updates are sent if new information is discovered.
How you can help
You can play an important role to help stop misinformation. Focusing on facts and remaining calm will help our resources work through situations as quickly as possible. Embellishing and posting or reposting false information can have serious effects, create panic and anxiety for students and parents.
Let’s work together to prevent rumors – especially on social media – so that fear and uncertainty do not gain power in stressful situations. The White Settlement ISD commitment is to keep our students safe. Our partnership with the community helps make this happen.
