October is School Safety Month!

Interested in knowing more about School Safety and Security?  See below for more information on what you can do to help us help our students and employees be safer and more secure on our campuses and on our busses!
Heard about the School Safety and Security Levy?  Here is what you need to know or where to to go to be informed.   Western Brown would like to have a resource officer dedicated to every building.  We would like to make our entrances more secure and update cameras and other technology for safety purposes.
 More information can be found on the Levy's FB page or Twitter feed.
Bus Safety is crucial for all of our students to get to school and back to home.  This month, WB will be conducting  bus drills that help our student practice exiting a bus in an emergency situation.  The district will be providing other learning events for our students, drivers, and staff.

Congrats to Melissa Whitley Huff!

This protocol can be found below and on our web site. Please make every attempt to keep your contact information current and notify the building secretary of any changes in your contact information.

Staff and Parental Notification Procedures:

In the event of an incident, communication will be provided through the one-call system to inform parents / staff and to provide additional information.  

Parents and staff, Pesticide Application notifications will be posted on the school's website under the Maintenance tab on the left hand side.
Western Brown also offers the SafeSchools Alert, a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration four different ways:
