CCSD Safety Measures

CCSD Families and Staff,

We know many of you are hurting because of what happened yesterday at an elementary school in Texas. In light of that horrific situation, we want to provide you with information and reminders related to security in our schools.

Attached to this email is a document that provides links to summaries of the physical, preventative measures in place in our buildings, protocols we follow to address threats, Student Code of Conduct highlights, and tips to keep your children and others safe.

You can also watch a video that lays out our security measures and another video that explains our Standard Response Protocol.

We also understand this week's unspeakable tragedy could lead to worry or fear.  Please know that our district and school leaders are willing to address those concerns and stand ready to support and protect your students and our staff. Do not hesitate to reach out.

Additionally, here are some online resources you can explore, either on your own or with your family:

Thank you for your attention to this message, and for all that you have done and continue to do for the schools of Charleston County School District.
