Safety & Security Initiatives

Safety & Security Initiatives

We recognize that there is not a single solution that solves all safety and security issues, so Tenafly Public Schools utilizes a comprehensive approach to safety and security, focusing on proactive and preventative strategies to ensure our students and staff are safe.  



Standard Response Protocol

Standard Response Protocol provides common language around four protective actions schools can take when an emergency arises. Weather events, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by school and district administration and staff.

Lockdown Alert System

The LENS Lockdown system is a faster and easier way for schools to go into Lockdown, meaning no one is allowed in or out of the school(s), and all students and staff are secured in classrooms.
