School Safety


School safety is a nationwide focus and an issue we take seriously.

Our commitment to creating and maintaining physically- and emotionally-safe learning environments that support the social-emotional and academic excellence of every child is a top priority in the Puyallup School District.

We are committed to school safety every single day, not only when a tragedy strikes elsewhere.

Our Security Measures

Our unwavering and relentless commitment to safety is visible in various ways throughout the district with vigilant staff, secure facilities and strong partnerships with law enforcement agencies.

Here are some of our safety and security measures we take as a district to help keep students and staff safe:

How You Can Help

We all share the responsibility of creating safe learning environments so students can achieve their highest potential. Here’s how you can help:

  • Report any potential threats. If your child sees something that may be a threat at school or online, please report it to your school principal or law enforcement.
  • Make sure your school has up-to-date contact information on file in case we need to notify you about an emergency situation.
