Valley Oaks students and staff participate in Lock Down drills, Fire drills, Shelter In Place drills, and Tornado drills which address the unlikely occurrence of incidents that are potentially dangerous to student safety. All staff members are trained in all procedures associated with these critical issues.
Student safety and security - A top priority
Bad weather: Is school open?
As we all know, weather on the Gulf Coast of Texas can be anything but predictable! In the event of inclement weather, listen to your local radio or TV stations for information about school closings or go directly to the district website: www.springbranchisd.com.
In the event of an emergency, Spring Branch ISD will also initiate an automated phone call alerting parents of school closures or delays. Please be sure to keep your contact information updated with your campus at all times. Spring Branch ISD will also post information on our main telephone number at (713) 251-2000.
Who provides district/school security?
The Spring Branch ISD Police Department oversees security for the school district. Full-time officers patrol schools and assist in investigations and provide security and law enforcement services at athletic and after-hours special events such as football games and graduation.
