The Elbert County School District is committed to taking proactive measures to protect the safety of our students and staff members. While we hope that a natural disaster or other serious incident never occurs, our goal is to be as prepared as possible for any potential emergency. The district and all school facilities have developed crisis and safety plans and regularly participate in drills.
The District took another very important step on Wednesday, February 21, 2018. All Elbert principals and district office leaders met with local law enforcement and emergency services personnel to discuss crisis response, management, and communications. As a result of this meeting, an action plan has been put into place that will address a number of areas, including the updating and simplification of our emergency operation plans.
Thank you to Emergency Services Director Chuck Almond, Sheriff Melvin Anderson, Captain Darin Rucker, Captain Darrin Scarborough, Emergency Services Assistant Director Beth Seymour, and Police Chief Mark Welsh for partnering with our School District in this very important work.
If you have any questions about your child or about your school's safety and support responses, please contact your school principal or Shayne Bennett, Director of Security.
