The overall safety of our students and staff at St. Francis School is of the utmost importance. It starts with our Peacebuilders Program, which was specifically designed to create a safe, positive learning environment for all our students. St. Francis students are taught to find nonviolent solutions to conflict though the program and the program is integrated into our school through Peacebuilder of the Day, Praise Nominations, Peacebuilder lessons, and a Peacebuilder pledge:
- I am a Peacebuilder.
- I pledge to praise people,
- to give up put downs,
- to seek wise people,
- to notice and speak up about hurts I have caused,
- to write wrongs,
- and to help others.
- I will build peace at school, in my community, and in my home each day.
In addition, St. Francis School has updated our safety plan in 2015 which includes a safety kit in every room, morning entrance security, a MARC (Multi-Agency Radio Communication) System for direct communication with police, an AED (automated external defibrillator) machine on site, locked entrances with cameras and voice verification, and administrators who are FEMA trained.
