School Safety

Communication involving school-based emergencies and school safety will be shared on a case-by-case basis with support from the principal, administration, emergency personnel, security and communications teams. 

Parents/guardians are notified of school-based emergencies one or more of the following ways:

  • text message or phone call
  • email or letter
  • electronic flyer posted and emailed via Peachjar
  • Seesaw message from principal

Rockford Public Schools believes in providing safe school environments for our students. That’s why the RPS 205 school board approved the installation of Evolv Express® weapons detection systems.
