The safety and security of our students, staff, visitors and buildings is of the utmost importance. The Safety & Security team provides guidance and support to our crossing guard teams, emergency preparedness teams, safety committees and other issues that arise in the district. We work with local fire and police agencies, oversee compliance with state and federal regulations, provide building security, and more.


Building Safety Designations (Lockdown, Safe Inside, Shelter-In-Place, Evacuation)

Northshore School District has developed four different building designations for students, staff and visitors for school-related emergencies. 

  • Lockdown
  • Safe Inside
  • Shelter-in-Place
  • Evacuation

Are You Ready To Call 9-1-1?

Many of us don’t call 9-1-1 very often. The process can have an emotional response based on our personal history and the incident we are reporting.
