    SCHOOL SAFETY

    Especially with the recent events happening in our communities, parent and community concerns about school safety are justified. We are working to do all we can to make our schools as safe as they can be and to have procedures in place to protect students, staff, and community.  These procedures are carefully developed with guidance from the State Department of Education and the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Department. In the most recent situation parents and others are hearing about and referencing, there has been no direct threat to any of our schools to which we have been made aware. Our offices are in consultation with the Sheriff's Department regularly about any possible issues or concerns related to our schools. As we understand it, whatever is going on with the referenced individual is through the Tuscaloosa Police Department and as such, our information is very limited. However, we have confirmed that there has been no threat made toward our schools. We will continue to stay in close contact with law enforcement in the event there is any change or need to do anything additional in our schools.

     

    Beyond this particular concern, we would like parents to know that several actions and plans are being made to enhance our security procedures, training, and responses. We have met with Sheriff Abernathy in multiple meetings that have included the involvement of all members of the Board of Education. We are making further facility assessments, security procedures training, and considering additional tools that will assist in overall security awareness and protection. We appreciate parents working with their local schools in proper procedures of visiting campuses, signing in, wearing of identification badges, and bringing any school security concerns to the attention of your local school administrators. School security is a shared responsibility of all who enter and live within our school campuses. We look forward to working with you to make our schools safe places where students can receive the education they deserve.

  • IMPORTANT 2017-2018 HEALTH ASSESSMENT DOCUMENTATION CHANGE:

    ANY STUDENT WITH  NOTED HEALTH CONDITIONS ON THE HEALTH PORTION OF INFOSNAP/ HEALTH ASSESSMENT FORMS WILL REQUIRE VERIFICATION/ DOCUMENTATION FROM THEIR PHYSICIAN, PRIOR TO THE DEVELOPMENT OR CONTINUATION OF A HEALTH CARE-PLAN.  PLEASE PROVIDE THE LATTER DOCUMENTATION TO YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL NURSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, PREFERABLY PRIOR TO STUDENTS' FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.

     

    • A Physician's note will be required in order to confirm students' medical diagnosis.
    • This note will NOT be required on an annual basis; however, any medical updates on a student's condition should be provided to the school nurse annually. 
    • Any student whom we do not receive a medical diagnosis confirmation on from the Physician, will be placed in a 'disabled mode' in INOW. 
    • All students prescribed daily and/ or 'as needed' medication, are already required to submit updated Physician orders each school year; therefore, these students will NOT require additional medical documentation.
