A message from Superintendent Lanty McGuire
The safety of students and staff members is a top priority for the Moline-Coal Valley School District. The district takes multiple steps to uphold its mission of providing a safe learning environment for our students and staff members. This mission includes creating a safe learning environment free of bullying as well as taking actions to prepare for a crisis, avoid a crisis, preclude successive crises, and to lead the healing process following a crisis. In an ideal world, we would like to prevent all school crime and ensure the safety of each staff member and student. In recent years, acts of violence in schools and other areas of the community have captured the attention of our country. The devastating losses associated with these events are unfathomable. We know that anxiety and fear exist in our schools and throughout our community.
Here are some general guidelines:
The School District works closely with the Moline-Coal Valley Police Department and Fire Departments to prevent safety problems and to address them immediately when they do occur. On our district webpage, you will find links to more detailed resources as well as district plans. Our community members, parents, staff and students all work together to create a positive learning environment in our school. It is up to each of us to do our part to foster a climate of respect and caring, as well as to be vigilant in our efforts to maintain school safety.
