School Safety

Keeping our staff and students safe is a top priority in Mead School District! RCW 28A.320.125 requires all public school districts and public schools to have current school safety plans and procedures in place. We work closely with our local first responders and department of emergency management in preparing for, responding to, and mitigating emergency incidents that may occur at our schools.

We are committed to providing safe places for students to learn and staff to provide a quality education. 

School Delays and Closures

In the event of a severe weather event or some other unforeseen circumstance, the Mead School District may delay the start of school or close schools for the day. Read more about our delay/closure process here.
