Everyone is responsible for keeping our schools safe.
Safe and Caring Schools Plan
Our schools have a clearly defined and well-communicated set of values and expectations. Our schools use a variety of educational, proactive programs to teach values and appropriate behaviours, and to help students learn the importance of making positive choices. Our schools believe in progressive discipline with consequences based on individual needs, the degree of the problem and the ability of the person to understand and handle the consequences. For more information please read our Safe and Caring Schools brochure
. You may also ask the staff at your child's school for a paper copy of the brochure.
Working Together for Safe Schools
Saskatoon schools have well-developed partnerships in our community. We work closely with Saskatoon Police Service and Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services to help ensure that our schools are safe places to be. For more information on how we work together read our Working Together for Safe Schools brochure.
As we continue to value the communication between home and school, we invite you to contact your child's school principal if you have any questions or concerns.
Community Threat Assessment and Support Protocol
On August 30, 2011, Saskatoon Public Schools signed a protocol with a number of community agencies pledging to work together towards creating safer schools and a healthier community. The Community Threat Assessment and Support Protocol is an important part of our school division's safe and caring schools strategy.
