Security and emergency preparedness is vital to the safety and well-being of students, staff and visitors throughout district schools and buildings. In collaboration with local law enforcement, emergency responders, hospital and public health officials, St. Cloud Area School District has a comprehensive crisis management plan in place that includes prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. St. Cloud Area School District meets on a regular basis throughout the year with surrounding crisis management officials, and reviews school and district emergency response plans annually.
