Laurens County School District 56 wishes the student's educational endeavor to be a happy, successful, and safe experience. In that effort, numerous policies and procedures have been developed in the event of emergencies such as criminal activity, severe or dangerous weather, fires, or other disasters. Naturally, some events such as tornados and earthquakes cannot be prevented. But with all disasters, the effects can be minimized to some degree with proper planning, vigilance, and training. It is the sincere hope of School District 56 that none of these events ever take place in our schools. Please know that the District and its employees will make every effort in maintaining the safety of our students and staff so that our schools will be a comfortable and secure environment where one can pursue their educational dreams.
