Safety and Security

The safety, health, and well-being of the students, staff, volunteers, and visitors of Yellow Springs Schools is always a top priority.  Students must first feel safe and secure in order to grow academically, emotional, and socially. We do not however live in a world free of crime and violence, or safe from natural disaster.  We believe in a collaborative approach to school safety involving input and support from our students and families, staff, the larger community, the Village of Yellow Springs, Yellow Springs Police Department, and Miami Township Fire/Rescue. 

General Safety Guidelines

  • Yellow Springs Schools conduct all safety drills required by law and by the Ohio Department of Education. These include fire drills, and tornado and other severe weather drills.
  • All staff access the buildings through unique photo ID/electronic access cards.
  • Video cameras are used to monitor activity throughout the schools.
  • Visitors to Yellow Springs Schools must sign in at the office and wear a visitor badge while at the school.
  • Any volunteer with unsupervised access to students will be required to pass a criminal background check through our visitor management system, Raptor.
  • Bullying and hazing activities of any type are prohibited. No school district employee shall encourage, permit, authorize, condone, or tolerate any bullying or hazing activity.
