Safety & Security

Screen_Shot_2020-05-11_at_8-removebg-pre

Our Campus is dedicated to ensuring the safety and security of every student and staff member on-site. Families and team members should feel secure knowing that safety is our number one priority. Upon arriving at Webb, we ask that you please have your ID ready to show to one of our members of the Office Staff, as it is REQUIRED at ALL TIMES to access the campus. If you do not have your ID or refuse to show your ID, you will NOT be allowed access to any part of the building at any time.

In AISD, situations that threaten student and staff safety and security are never acceptable. AISD will continue to be vigilant in our efforts to protect every child and staff member from harm, and we will continue to explore new options for increasing security protocols as needed. We remain vigilant with our safety and security measures, and we need your help.

Talk with your students about being cautious. Make sure they understand they should not touch anything unusual or suspicious and should report it to a trusted adult or the police. Remind other adults, your friends, family, and neighbors to do the same. No matter how minor, if you see something, it needs to be reported to the Austin Police Department 9-1-1.

Additional actions you can take to improve safety when visiting Webb:

  • Enter through the visitors’ entrance and check-in at the front office.

  • Do not let anyone “piggyback” on your entry into the school. Ask them to wait their turn.

  • Wear your visitor sticker in a clearly visible location. 

  • Report anyone you see walking around campus without an AISD badge or visitor badge to the front office.

  • Know that firearms are not permitted in school buildings at any time with the exception of those carried by law enforcement. 

  • Remember: “If you see something, say something.”

  • Follow Austin ISD’s social media accounts that may be used in an emergency. On Twitter, follow @AustinISD and on Facebook, like https://www.facebook.com/austinisd/.

Additionally, you can talk with your child about reporting suspicious rumors or activity. Make sure your children can name two adults at school that they would feel comfortable alerting.

Our campus counselors are trained to support students and staff and are available if needed. For more advice about how to talk to your children about violence, visit the National Association of School Psychologists online resources: http://bit.ly/2khji7j.

The Austin ISD team works closely with the Austin Police Department to keep our students safe. Know that if you receive an alert from AISD, we are coordinating with APD to send those messages.

 

We are one, large Webb family, and we care for all our children. It takes all of us to make school safe, and we thank you for your assistance in keeping our students safe.
