Burlington Schools Safety Survey
BSD Safety Letter
Burlington Schools Safety Survey
Following the recent shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, Burlington Schools met with the Burlington Police and Fire Departments to revisit our safety protocols and conduct a security audit of our school facilities. In addition to these proactive plans, we are assessing our physical plants and determining necessary changes. We are working to develop a plan for Board consideration.
That is where we would appreciate your help. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey (link below) about the safety and security at your child’s school. Your feedback will help us develop a list of recommendations and improvements in the current school year, along with budgeting for other changes going forward. The survey will remain open until February 1st.
Nothing is more important than our students' safety. Please know that we will do everything we can to ensure their well-being.

Dear parents and guardians:
As students return, I want to update you as to the safety planning in the Burlington Schools.
Following the recent shootings in CT, Burlington Schools met with Burlington Police and Fire and revisited our safety protocols. Much of what is recommended is already in place in Burlington: the use of identification in the buildings, locking all but one door at each school during the school day, monthly planning meetings at the school and district levels to be as prepared as possible for safety incidents that may occur, regular lockdown and evacuation drills, and on some campuses such as BHS, cameras to help us monitor hard to see places.
In addition to these proactive plans, we are assessing our physical plants and determining priority need for changes to be made. At the top of our list are Edmunds Elementary, where the office is on the 2nd floor, Champlain Elementary where the office cannot see the front door, and BHS, where there are many entrances. We will be working to develop a plan for facility safety improvements and will be sharing these plans with the Board in the next month or so. We anticipate making some changes in the current school year and budgeting for other changes going forward.
We all care deeply about your children – our students. All Burlington schools have a well-earned reputation of being student-centered. Nothing is more at the center of our hearts and minds than our students' safety. Please know that we will do everything we can to ensure their safety.
