School Safety

At Martinsville City Public Schools, safety is one of our top priorities. We believe that our students, teachers, and staff deserve to work and learn in a place where they feel safe and secure.

MCPS school safety personnel are innovators and leaders in school safety. The district has implemented multi-layered security system comprised of a number of elements that operate in the background, keeping students and staff safe without detracting from the learning environment:

  • A School Resource Officer in every school

  • Window armor

  • Gunshot detection system

  • Key-card classroom entry
