Safety and Security

See Something, Hear Something, Say Something

Keeping Sapulpa Schools Safe
The safety and security of students, staff members, and visitors is the top priority at Sapulpa Public Schools. Fire drills, severe weather drills, and intruder drills are just a few examples of the measures taken by our district Safety and Security Director and school sites to prepare students for an emergency.

Sapulpa Public Schools works with Sapulpa Police Department to contract a School Resource Officer (SRO). Sapulpa Police and other local law enforcement agencies can also assist with emergency preparedness, prevention, recovery, and response. All students, staff members, and parents should immediately report any suspicious activity or potential threats to a school or district administrator or the Safety and Security Director. All reports are taken very seriously.

Reporting Concerns
Sapulpa Public Schools strives consistently to maintain a safe and secure school environment. If you see or hear something suspicious, say something!
