Community Safety FAQ

Dear Palisades Community,

To answer questions about how the Palisades School District handles situations regarding student management, student safety and community involvement, I have created a frequently-asked-questions (FAQ) document.  Links to our website are provided throughout to assist you in understanding district policies and protocols, and to enhance your awareness of resources available to you through various community agencies.

The Palisades Community values education and the safety and welfare of our children. Together, we can provide a safe and healthy environment in which all students can learn.

Kind regards,

Bridget O'Connell, Ed.D.
