Pequea Valley School District continues to have safety as a top priority with our learners, staff, and parents.  Our staff and learners participate in a variety of monthly safety drills to better prepare us for potential emergency situations.

After the drills are conducted, the school safety teams examine the efficiency of our drills and continue to improve our trainings and safety.

We also have a district safety committee which meets once a month to discuss concerns and review our district plan for safety.   Pequea Valley School District partners with the IU13 Safety and Security Cohort, as well as the PA State Police.

NEW for 2019-2020 school year: The PVSD has established a threat assessment team at each of our buildings.  The purpose of these teams is the assessment of and intervention with students whose behaviors may indicate a threat to the safety of the student, other students, school employees, school facilities, the community and others.
