CPS Safety & Security Statement

The safety and security of the students and staff of our school system is a paramount concern for the Board of Education and the Administration of our schools. 

Since the tragedy at Columbine High School in 1999, our school system has continued to make physical building improvements as well as implementing procedures and practices to ensure the security of all buildings.  Certainly the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School led us to a complete a comprehensive reevaluation of our school facilities, procedures and protocols for emergency situations.  That review included representatives from the Cheshire Police Department and the Cheshire Fire Department.  (click below to read the entire Building Safety and Security Statement.)
