Safety Drills and Precautions at Moss Point School District

Moss Point, MS– “This morning, Principal Joe Griffin was notified that a
student made a threat to another student yesterday on the way home.
Because of the threat of a possible weapon and the incident that occurred in
Florida on Valentine’s Day, we made immediate contact with the Moss Point
Police Department to ensure that all students were safe. During our safety
drill and search, students remained in class and items were checked. After
the completion of all safety procedures, there was NOT a weapon found on
campus and class changes resumed at the normal 2nd block time,” said Dr.
Shannon Vincent, Superintendent.

As a result, Moss Point School District had the opportunity to practice safety
and search precautions in case of an emergency. MPSD will continue to
strengthen our drills to ensure the continued safety of our students and staff.

As a reminder, MPSD number one priority is the safety of the students and
staff. If students, parents, staff, or community members would like to report
an incident after hours, the district hotline is 228.285.2037. The message
goes directly to our School Resource Officers for investigation and
resolution.
