Avonworth School Safety 

 

The Avonworth School District understands school safety is always a concern. We take the safety of our students, teachers, staff and local community very seriously. As a result, our safety committee comprised of administrators, parents, teachers, local police officials and healthcare workers meet monthly. Discussed are increased communication, professional development, current practices, and procedures.

We welcome your feedback as we continually assess our district's security.  Please utilize the online form to the left to send any comments, concerns, tips or resources you feel would be of benefit.  It is anonymous.
