Safety and Wellness

AESD Safety & Security

The Avondale Elementary School District prioritizes the safety and security of all students, staff and visitors, and is committed to providing safe learning and work environments for all.  We have made many preparations to deal effectively and realistically with situations that could occur in or around our schools/facilities.  While we hope that a serious incident never occurs, our goal is to be prepared for any potential emergency.  

The Avondale ESD has a Safety and Wellness Administrator who oversees the safety and security of students and staff.  The district also works in partnership with local law enforcement and first responders, specifically the police departments of Avondale and Goodyear, to monitor and ensure our school communities are safe.

Standard Response Protocol 

The Avondale Elementary School District in partnership with local law enforcement utilizes the I Love U Guys Foundation's Standard Response Protocol (SRP).  Many school districts in the Southwest Valley also use the Standard Response Protocol.  

The Standard Response Protocol is a nationally recognized protocol that is simple for staff and students and utilizes clear common language.  

The premise is simple - there are five specific actions that can be performed during an incident. When communicating these, the action is labeled with a “Term of Art” and is then followed by a “Directive.” Execution of the action is performed by active participants, including students, staff, teachers and first responders. The SRP is based on the following actions: Hold, Secure, Lockdown, Evacuate, and Shelter.

Keep Your Student’s Emergency Contacts Updated

In order to ensure that we can communicate with families regarding their student, or in case of an emergency, it is essential that families keep their emergency contact information up to date in their ParentVue account.  Please contact your student's school directly for assistance with your ParentVue account.
