School Safety

  • Dear Berlin Brothersvalley Community,

    In recent weeks, our nation has experienced heart wrenching and physically devastating violence. We want to acknowledge the toll that these events have taken on schools across the country. In the wake of these events, we want to reassure you that BBSD continues to provide a safe environment for our children to learn.

    BBSD is vigilant in our efforts to ensure our schools are safe. We have a detailed emergency operations plan that lays out specific plans and responses related to prevention & mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. We conduct regular drills that provide practice to our students and staff on how to best respond to emergency situations. Also, we continue to work closely with law enforcement and other security professionals to maximize our safety efforts.

    Please know that BBSD continues to be proactive in our safety measures. We encourage the community to work with the school district and local police departments, and to report any issues that may cause you concern. If you see something, please say something, and encourage your children to do the same.
