Safety and Security

Minnetonka Public Schools is committed to providing a safe, welcoming school experience for all of our students, staff, families and visitors in all of our schools and throughout our grounds. We are continuously working to improve and evolve our security procedures and will continue to do so, engaging best practice methods, processes and protocols to further enhance our approach to providing a comprehensive and multifaceted security presence. We have exceptional relationships with our local law enforcement, fire departments and emergency management teams in our communities, as well as with Hennepin County, Carver County, the City of Minnetonka, and other cities within our school district.

Emergency Communications

In an emergency, impacted staff, parents/guardians, and depending on the situation and age-level, sometimes students, will receive email communication through Minnetonka Public Schools’ mass communications notification system. In many cases, a text and/or phone message will also be sent to parents and staff. (Note: To receive phone messages and text messages through this notification system, parents and staff must have their cell phone numbers listed in their SSO profile.
