School safety is the highest priority here at Bristow Public Schools. On Friday, November 4th, all BPS certified staff spent the day becoming more knowledgeable about the collective effort of keeping students safe. BPS brought in Gary Shelton with the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security to discuss implemented safety plans . Gary is a 24 year veteran of the Norman Police Department. Along with many other titles and recognitions, he is a certified Prevention & Deterrence of Terrorist Acts Instructor as well as a Risk Management for Interscholastic Athletics & After School Events instructor.
In addition to this training for staff, BPS has collaborated with our local Bristow Police Department to have at least one officer on duty on school property before, during, and after on all school calendar days.
