The safety of your child is paramount in Bentonville Schools. If our students are scared, hungry or unprepared, it's difficult to educate them but recent events across the nation made us realize we must do more to communicate school safety. We repeatedly heard from you, our parents, regarding your desire for more information. What are we doing differently, in terms of security? What should I be saying to my child? On this web page, you'll find a tremendous amount of information. We don't wish to publicly share every detail of our security plan, for obvious reasons, but we want you to know school safety is a top priority for us. You'll also find age-appropriate talking points here, and details for our See Something, Say Something campaign so you can broach these topics with your children. It takes all of us, in partnership, to care for the safety of our students. If you have any questions regarding the safety of your child's school, don't hesitate to contact us. We realize you've entrusted us with your children, and we want to do all we can to get them home to you at the end of each day.
