Safety & Security
Fairmount, along with the Jefferson County School District, is committed to protecting the safety and well-being of our students and staff. We understand students learn best when they can attend classes in a secure and welcoming environment.
JEFFCO Public Schools Safety Messages
Our district and schools use our Facebook and Twitter channels to disseminate urgent and emergency messages to the community - be sure to follow us! Additionally, we use the SchoolMessenger Communicate system to message parents about safety-related issues, among other things, via email, text, and sometimes phone.
The SchoolMessenger system uses what you, as a parent or guardian, enter into the JeffcoConnect registration system under the Notification Preferences tab. Therefore, it is vital families ensure contact information is always up to date within this tab and the boxes are checked for which type of communication you wish to receive where.
Jeffco Safety Plan and Emergency Procedures
The district's safety plan identifies security programs and measures that focus on prevention, intervention, and crisis response.
- The School Safety Plan is designed to be used by school principals to create safe and respectful school environments.
- Review our Emergency Situations at School document which describes the types of emergencies that can occur in schools and how families should respond.
SAFE2TELL® is designed to help students anonymously report any threatening behavior that endangers them, their friends, family, or the community. Call 877-542-7233 to get help.
