What happens in an emergency?
In the event of an emergency, Brunswick City Schools will immediately collaborate with local emergency personnel such as the police and fire departments. Communication/updates will be provided to parents using the following methods:
- phone call/email using School Messenger
- updates posted on social media pages
- information posted on the district website
Safety Drills - Both students and staff are trained and practice safety drills several times throughout the year. This includes fire drills, lockdowns and evacuations. The district uses ALICE (Alert, Lowdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) strategies
Staff Training - Each school year, all staff members are required to complete online training about various topics including: bullying prevention, child abuse, student privacy rights, children with diabetes, fire safety, blood-borne pathogens and EpiPens.
PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support) - With the theme of PRIDE- Performance, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Effort, each building has incorporated PBIS through various activities and programs. This serves as a reminder that Brunswick is a place where all of our students and staff should feel appreciated, safe, respected and proud.
School Resource Officers - School resource officers are officers of the Brunswick Police Department that are assigned specifically to the school system. Read more about our school resource officers here.
Photo ID Cards - All staff members are issued an ID card which provides access to their building. Doors are kept secured and visitors must be buzzed into the building.
