School Safety Conversation: A Collaborative Effort

Ensuring the safety and security of students and staff is a top priority. Over the past several months, the school district conducted a comprehensive review of safety and security protocols, culminating in a plan that was presented to the School Board on August 14, 2023. A key component of this plan involves engaging with the Edina Public Schools community in a meaningful dialogue.

Edina Public Schools parents, guardians, and staff are invited to a, "School Safety Conversation," on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 6 p.m. The event will take place at the Fick Auditorium, located at Edina High School (6754 Valley View Rd, Edina, MN 55439).

  • Dr. Stacie Stanley, Edina Public Schools Superintendent
  • Natasha Monsaas-Daly, Director of Media & Technology Services
