WSD Administrative Teams Partake in Safety Day Workshop
July 27, 2022
As the Wentzville School District gears up for the 2022-2023 school year, administrative teams from each school came together with local first responders to review their school safety plans on July 19 and 27.
Building leadership teams reviewed their building crisis quicksheets, building crisis guides, trauma bag contents, and safe room operations plans (for schools with tornado shelters).
“Our District takes safety and security very seriously, and reviewing our emergency plans on an annual basis with our first responders ensures that the practices we have in place are solid,” said Dr. Danielle Tormala, Wentzville School District superintendent. “These meetings were an opportunity for our teams to dive even deeper into ways we can work together to keep our students, staff, and communities safe.”
There was participation from every school in the District as well as Lake Saint Louis Police Department, O’Fallon Police Department, Wentzville Police Department, St. Charles County Police Department, Wentzville Fire Protection District, Red Cross, St. Charles County Ambulance District, and the St. Charles County Health Department.
“We will continue to build on our strong partnerships with local first responders to ensure we are doing all that we can to be prepared in the event of an emergency,” Dr. Tormala said.
