Safety & Security

  • The Safety and Security Team works with all district staff members across the district to provide the safest environment possible for our students, staff and visitors. This is done through continual training, planning, and by continuing to align our security procedures with the most current standards. While our district has many forms of security technology in place, we believe that the first line of defense for a crisis is the vigilance of our staff, students, and parents in terms of providing awareness and opportunities for prevention. Each of us can minimize the impact of emergency situations by ensuring we have plans in place that allow us to act quickly and safely. 

    Keeping our students and staff safe at school is a top priority. We partner with the Estes Park Police Department to provide a School Resource Officer (SRO) who works closely with all schools to serve as the liaison for police support when needed. Estes Park Schools coordinates with all local emergency responders to ensure our procedures and plans for fire, flood, lockdowns and other drills are current and reflect best practices for student safety. 

    If you have questions regarding the current safety functions, training or processes in place at the Estes Park School District, please contact the Safety Committee Chair, Dave Coleson, (970) 586-2361 ext. 3401.
