In the Tiverton Public Schools, the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. This page provides important information about the school district’s efforts to keep our school buildings secure and prepare our community to respond appropriately in emergency situations.
We have excellent safeguards, procedures, and protocols in place. Our students and staff consistently demonstrate familiarity with safety procedures and readiness to act on them when necessary. At the same time, we recognize that the landscape of school safety is constantly evolving, and we are committed to examining and re-examining all of our safety plans to identify opportunities for improvement. We welcome feedback from the community.
