About Safety Services

  • In Olathe Public Schools, the safety and security of our students, staff and visitors is a top priority. The Safety Services department has implemented a wide variety of programs and tools across the district to support this initiative. 
    “We know that building trusted relationships with our students is the best way for our educators to create a safe space for students to learn,” Superintendent Dr. Brent Yeager said. “However, we also recognize that emergency situations can occur at any moment, and it is best to have resources in place to support our students and staff in times of crisis." 
    One of our greatest assets in safety is the trusted staff members in our buildings. Our Safety Services department works in partnership with the City of Olathe and Olathe Police Department to ensure there is a School Resource Officer (SRO) in each high school, middle school and alternative education site. Elementary schools are served by local SROs, as well as our safety specialists. Finally, our co-responder helps serve alongside our administrators and members of the Safety Services team to support the mental health and wellbeing of our students, staff, families, community members and visitors in times of crisis. 
    If you have questions for the Safety Services team, please call 913-780-7000.
