Providing a safe and secure environment for students to learn and educators to teach is “Priority #1” at Pampa ISD. Creating school campuses that are emotionally, physically, and digitally safe, secure, and healthy is a responsibility that is not taken lightly.

The Pampa ISD School Board, administrators, staff, parents, community stakeholders, and students have planned, prepared, and practiced programs and drills in order to proactively prepare for the unknown, the unwanted, and the unimaginable. We understand
that this is a process that will continually evolve, but constant is the fact that school safety is and will remain “Priority #1.”

Emergency planning and management plays a key part in keeping our schools safe. The sad reality is that potential threats or events can occur with little or no warning. This requires Pampa ISD to be proactive in planning and preparing for events that we hope will never happen. Pampa ISD considers students, teachers,
administration and law enforcement, all strategic partners, all with specific roles, each playing their part in planning and implementation of school safety protocols.

Pampa ISD’s Emergency Operation Plan consists of ongoing training, drilling, and exercising, coordinating with state and local partners, ongoing assessments and the establishment of personnel dedicated to safety and security.
