Safety & Security

The safety of students and staff members is a top priority for the Midview Local Schools. Your child's student handbook contains detailed information about maintaining a safe, secure, and conducive learning environment for all students. 
 
Midview Local Schools works closely with the local police department, fire department, and emergency services to prevent safety and security issues.  We work with these agencies immediately if problems should occur.
 
Everyday security measures at Midview Local Schools:
  • During the school day students, parents, and visitors must enter through designated doors at each building.
  • All visitors (including parents and volunteers) entering the schools during school hours must buzz for admittance into the building.
  • A valid driver's license or picture ID is needed to obtain a visitors badge.  All visitors are required to wear a visitor's badge while in the building and must check-out in the main office when leaving.  
  • A valid picture ID will be requested when picking up a student from school.
  • Weapons and look alike weapons (including toys) are strictly prohibited at school, school events, and on school buses. The school handbook details consequences for the possession of such weapons.
  • All schools particpate in severe weather drills, fire drills, and lockdown/evacuation drills throughout the school year.  The first fire drill needs to be completed within the first 10 days of school.

Emergency Operations Plan

A District-Wide and School Building Specific Emergency Operation Plan is in existence and updated annually.  The purpose of the plan is to provide information on how to respond to emergency incidents by outlining the responsibilities and duties of all employees.  Our plan has been distributed to the Lorain County Sheriff's Office, Eaton Township Fire Department, Eaton Township Emergency Medical Service, and the Lorain County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. 
 
The Emergency Operation Plans address responses to extraordinary emergency situations associated with all hazards including natural disasters, technological emergencies, and biological incidents.  It is the principle guide for ensuring protection of life, health, safety and property, and aids in recovery operations to ensrue that the schools return to pre-emergency operations. The plan is intended to facilitate coordination with local first responders and establish a framework for an effective system of comprehensive emergency management. All EOPs were developed pursuant to Section 3313.536 and 3737.73 pf the Ohio Revised Code and Section 3305-5-01 of the Ohio Administrative Code, conforms to the National Incident Management System and all applicable Homeland Security Presidential Directives.
