Safety in our schools is and always will be of paramount concern to Flagler Schools and local law enforcement. We take this responsibility very seriously and have worked to make our policies and procedures standard across the entire district. We have collaborated with the Flagler County Sheriff's Office to ensure the most effective response in case to an emergency at any of our facilities. All county agencies will continue to work in concert with each other. This will give us the best chance for a positive resolution.
The following is an updated plan of our three color coded status alerts and their explanations. Each status includes an overview to provide clarification. All Flagler Schools will operate in a green status during normal everyday operations. In the event the individual school's status is changed, appropriate procedures will be followed by the school staff.
In the case of a red status, the affected school campus will have a large law enforcement contingency and non-emergency personnel will be advised to stay off campus until the threat is eliminated. While the prospect of not being allowed on campus seems unthinkable, it might be the only way to keep the emergency under control. The best help for those impacted inside is to allow those outside to do their job effectively and with the ability to focus on the task at hand. As always, the goal will be to resolve the issue safely and return the school to a green status.
