GBES Safety Letter

Dear GBES Families,

In light of the horrific school shooting in Florida, APS has received numerous calls and emails from concerned parents and guardians wanting to know what measures Albuquerque Public Schools takes to keep students and staff safe.

As Superintendent Reedy posted to and social media sites and shared with employees, we have reviewed our school site safety plan which includes detailed instructions for a host of possible emergency situations including an active shooter on campus.

Here is some information we can share about how we address school safety:

  • Our school has a site safety plan that includes specific instructions
  • Active Shooter PD has been conducted with school staff.
  • We will practice a lockdown, shelter-in-place noted in our site-specific plans during the school year.
  • In all emergency scenarios, we remind our students and staff to be responsive and follow the directions of all public safety responders.
  • Fortunately for APS, we have our own Police Department that works closely with the Albuquerque Police Department and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office.
  • Any time a student or staff member sees a suspicious person on campus or encounters a person who is being disruptive, they are asked to contact APS police or administrator.
  • Visitors to our schools are expected to check in at the front office and wear a visitor’s badge while on campus.
  • We have security cameras at GBES
  • We take seriously every threat or rumor of a threat to students, staff or school.
  • Anyone who hears of a possible threat to a school is encouraged to contact a school administrator or police. The APS Police Department can be reached at 505-243-7712.

We all have a role to play in ensuring our schools continue to be a safe place for learning, and it is incumbent on all of us to be vigilant and supportive of one another. Remember, if you see or hear something, say something. You can contact APS School Police at 505-243-7712.
