NEW Parking and Drop Off Procedures at Southland Effective Dec. 10,2018
We have been working with our School Community Council, Parent Teacher Organization, and members of our District Safety Committee to increase the safety of our students during drop off and pick up. The following procedures will be implemented beginning December 10, 2018. We will have several SCC and PTO volunteers, District Safety Committee Members, and our DARE Officer here to help us with the implementation of these procedures. We thank you in advance for your assistance as we work together to keep everyone at Southland safe.

Safety at Southland
We want you to know that safety is a top priority at Southland Elementary. Here are some of the ways we work to ensure your students are safe while they are at school.
- We practice monthly drills such as fire drills, lock downs, lockouts, earthquake drills, and others.
- Our teachers and staff are trained on how to handle emergency situations and account for all students.
- We have faculty and staff that are CPR trained and we have an AED Defibrillator on site.
- Students are taught what to do in each emergency situation to stay safe.
- All exterior doors are locked during school hours and visitors are required to check in at the office and wear an identifying sticker while in the school.
- Parents are required to show identification.
- All volunteers working alone with students must be fingerprinted and background checked to ensure student safety.
- Security cameras are installed both inside and outside of the school.
- Our staff was recently QPR trained. QPR is to suicide what CPR is to cardiac arrest. If enough people in the community are trained to recognize the signs of suicide and intervene appropriately, we can reduce the number of suicide deaths in our youth.
Southland Student Leader Chat
November Student Leader Chat Participants
We had Sheriff Rosie Rivera, as our Student Leader Chat guest this month. Sheriff Rivera is the first female sheriff for Salt Lake County. She discussed with the students how important it is to be proactive. She uses the 7 Habits daily in her job.
Thank you Sheriff Rivera for coming and visiting with our Student leaders! Congratulations to all of our Student Leaders for November!
