Hamilton School District Superintendent Tom Korst sent out a letter this week to parents, guardians and the public, outlining the safety programs in place in School District #3.

Korst emphasized that the district’s emergency operations plan was developed and is fully in place, with partnership from the Hamilton Police, Hamilton Volunteer Fire Department, Public Health Department, Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital, county and Hamilton government and the 911 Center.

He said district-wide Safety Team meetings are held on a quarterly basis. Every year a full-scale Emergency Drill is conducted, each time dealing with difference types of emergencies. Monthly drills include students and staff and include lock-down procedures.

The district contracts with the Hamilton Police Department for a School Resource Officer, a long-standing program.

He also mentioned the use of the Montana Behavior Initiative and an anti-bullying program from kindergarten through 8th grade. The schools have mental health programs and the Health Enhancement curriculum includes safety.

The recent school bus camera installation is complete this year.

Korst also reminded parents to make sure their contact information – including phone number, address and emergency contacts – are up-to-date at their kids’ schools. and he advised parents to contact their child’s teacher if they feel the child would benefit from more support.
