Safety Overview

The safety, security and well-being of students and staff are one of the top priorities at Dyersburg City Schools. We are committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students to succeed. When necessary, notifications and updates will be sent via the Dyersburg City Schools messaging system, social media, email, and other written forms to keep parents apprised of events or issues that occur at or close to their child's school. Students WILL NOT be released during any emergency response until all-clear has been given by law enforcement and safe, orderly dismissal is possible.


Each school has emergency and safety plans developed in collaboration with our local law enforcement and emergency responders to guide effective and efficient responses. Any threats to DCS are taken seriously and investigated immediately and thoroughly by local law enforcement, Dyersburg Police Department and DCS administrators.
