Safety & Security

Safe Schools. Safe Communities.

  • Safety is always a top priority for any school district as it directly impacts the well-being and success of students, teachers, staff and the greater community. When students feel safe, they are more likely to attend school regularly and perform at their best. Likewise, Shakopee is committed to providing a safe environment for teachers and staff so they can focus on supporting each and every student in a meaningful and impactful way. 


    Ongoing Process. Team Approach.

    School safety is not a one-time effort but an ongoing process that requires regular evaluation and improvement. Shakopee Public Schools continues to partner with school staff, the City of Shakopee, Shakopee Police & Fire Departments, Scott County and national partners to constantly enhance safety and security measures, in addition to efforts that support the overall wellbeing and mental health of our school community.


    Planning for the Unknown Doesn’t Have to Be Scary

    Planning for the unknown and being prepared for an emergency shouldn’t be alarming. Planning ahead means that Shakopee, as a district and community, will be ready with an intentional response to things such as severe weather, a neighborhood power outage or a public health alert. 

    This June, after school is out and the Class of 2024 raises their graduation caps, Shakopee Public Schools will be holding its first safety and reunification planning exercise in partnership with various public safety agencies. This exercise is designed to build confidence with school staff and increase alignment with local partners while seeking to best support students and families.


    School Community Partnership

    It's important for schools, individuals and communities in Minnesota to be prepared for emergencies by having a plan, staying informed and knowing how to respond safely. Families - please take time to review and update contact information in Infinite Campus or by connecting with your child’s school. Our collective partnership will continue to make Shakopee a great, safe place to live, and most importantly, where students of all ages and abilities can thrive.
