A Sandy Hook Initiative for Safer Schools

The Safety Umbrella

The school safety umbrella is an illustration of several basic components of a school safety plan.

Schools must consider ALL aspects of safety relevant to their specific site. All team members must participate in the creation of an individualized school safety umbrella.

More to consider: geographic location, proximity to highways, factories, plants and railroads; neighborhood crime and climate.
