Safety and Security

The safety and welfare of Big Lake Schools students and staff is a high priority. While emergency situations are rare in schools, we are committed to implementing and drilling best practices. Through annual training and routine drills, staff and students are taught how to respond in school emergencies.


If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your school administrator.
