Aubrey ISD Police Department
As the 2018-19 school year gets underway, I wanted to update our community about several security upgrades the district has put in place. I also wanted to provide you with several safety tips for the school year.
In reviewing our safety plans, we made several security upgrades that will benefit our district. These include upgrades to our campuses. A significant addition was two police officers to our department which occured in May, 2018. Our officers have tactical training, specialized training for juveniles and de-escalation techniques. With the additional officers, our school district police force can provide stronger safety coverage for students and staff on each campus.
The Aubrey ISD police department has set up a tip email (firstname.lastname@example.org), which students or parents can use to report anything suspicious. We encourage you to talk with your children about reporting things they see or hear to campus administration or the district police department. There is a link to this email on the Aubrey ISD website at www.aubreyisd.net under the tab “Tips Hotline”.
Another link on the website is the Aubrey ISD Bullying Reporting tool. This reporting tool is a submittable form located on the front page of the district site along with every campus page. If you have a concern about bullying, please call an administrator at your child’s campus or use this tool to report an issue.
Traffic safety around each of our campuses is very important to our staff and students. Please be mindful of students walking, riding their bikes to campus, or standing on the corner waiting for the bus. Double check and clear an intersection before proceeding.
School speed limits are set by the Texas Department of Transportation. The following speed limits are in place for our school zones: Monaco Elementary School is 15 mph, Brockett Elementary is 20 mph on Chestnut, 35 mph on Hwy 377, and Aubrey Middle School and Aubrey High School are both 35 mph.
School bus safety is a significant component of our overall plan. Cars passing stopped school buses loading and unloading students is highly dangerous. This includes bus stops on Hwy 377. Please remember, never pass a bus when the red lights are activated. This indicates students are loading or unloading the bus. State law states that when a school bus has its red lights flashing, you must stop. You must stop even if it's a highway unless it is a divided median with a center divider in place. Failure to do so can result in a fine up to $500.
Our officers are ready to serve our community and students of Aubrey ISD. We will be hosting different classes on a variety of topics for the community in the upcoming weeks. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or any of our officers if we can be of service. We wish all the students a safe and successful school year.
