Safety in our schools is, and will always be, a priority to Flagler Schools and local law enforcement. We take school safety very seriously and have standardized our policies and procedures across the district. We have collaborated with the Flagler County Sheriff's Office to ensure the most effective response in the case of an emergency at any of our facilities. All county agencies work together to provide the best chance for a positive resolution.

Flagler Schools encourages families, students, and employees to share information about emerging safety and security concerns before they escalate into emergencies


Flagler Schools uses a color-coded status alert system in all of our school facilities. All schools operate in a green status during normal, everyday operations. In the event that an individual school's status changes, appropriate procedures will be followed by the school staff.

In the case of a red status, non-emergency personnel will be advised to stay off of the school campus until the threat is eliminated. This procedure is followed in order to allow law enforcement to focus on the emergency and work more effectively.

While the prospect of not being allowed on campus seems unthinkable to families, it is the best way to keep the emergency under control and help those impacted inside of the school. As always, the goal is to resolve the issue safely and return the school to a green status.
