Student Safety is a TOP PRIORITY

Winton Woods City Schools believes students must first feel safe and secure in order to grow academically, emotionally, and socially.

While every emergency situation is unique, we continue to prepare our staff and students by having a COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL SAFETY PLAN that addresses our response not only to severe weather, fires, natural disasters, environmental incidents, industrial accidents and medical emergencies, but also to more serious types of disruptions and threats.

Our annual Sandy hook promise Say Something and No One Plays Alone week bring focus to one week while reinforcing our efforts year-round to create a culture of citizenship both inside and outside the classroom that is conducive to learning.
