Know the Signs

Gun violence, as well as other forms of violence, can sometimes be preventable. Students who are at risk of hurting themselves or others may display signs and signals before an act of violence takes place. When you don’t know what to look for, it can be easy to miss signs or dismiss them as unimportant. Please take a moment a watch the 2 ½ minute video entitled “Evan” produced by Sandy Hook Promise.

Please visit the Sandy Hook Promise website for more information relating to preventing gun violence and other tragedies.


Run. Hide. Fight

Given the prevalence of active shooter incidents occurring within our schools, it is incumbent upon each of us to know the steps to take in such an event. We ask that each member of our campus community take a few moments to watch the attached videos.


This first, entitled “Run. Hide. Fight.” was produced by a partnership between the Department of Homeland Security and the City of Houston.

Warning – This video contains graphic content and may not be suitable for all ages.



The second video, also entitled “Run. Hide. Fight”, was distributed by the California State University system and was specifically produced for college campus environments. Both videos address specific actions to take to protect your life in an active shooter incident.
