The following policy was presented for a first reading at the February 22, 2021 School Committee meeting and will be considered for adoption at the March 1, 2021 School Committee meeting.

The Smithfield School Committee believes that the making of a threat that a bomb or other explosive device has been placed in or on school property has the potential to seriously disrupt the educational process. Therefore, the School Committee has approved a bomb threat procedure that is available in the District’s Emergency Operations Plan (DEOP). This procedure is not shared publicly in order to preserve the confidentiality of our safety procedures.
