At Denver Academy, we are dedicated to the safety and security of our entire community including students, employees, and parents. We continue to use the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) system for crisis response at DA. Below is additional information about the SRP as well as a reminder of safety and security resources for students and parents.
Standard Response Protocol (SRP) Drills and Review
DA recently conducted an employee drill of the Standard Response Protocol emergency response system. The SRP is based on five actions that will be called on the PA in the event of an emergency. Following the employee drill, DA teachers reviewed the system with students briefly in their homeroom classes so they are prepared in the event of an emergency. Please Note: We do not conduct school-wide active crisis drills with our students. Denver Academy staff is well-prepared to lead students in the necessary SRP responses if needed.
Safe2Tell provides young people a way to report any threatening behaviors or activities endangering themselves or someone they know in a way that keeps them safe and anonymous. More about Safe2Tell
DA – Common Sense Media Certified School
We encourage all parents to have a discussion with their children about the power of technology and its impact on others. As a Common Sense Media Certified School, we at DA are committed to preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly. We continue to recommend that both parents and students visit the Common Sense Media website for information and guidelines around the use of technology.
In the event of an emergency on campus, you will receive a phone call and/or text from us with additional information and any details about where and when to pick up your child. We will also continue to reach out via phone with any school closures and late start information. Please log in to myDA using the link on the top right corner of the Denver Academy website to update your contact information as needed. Thank you!
