Parents!-Additional Safety Measures

Ore City Parents,

I want to make you aware of the additional safety measures that the District has put in place for the 2018-2019 school year.

Ore City ISD recently hired a School Resource Officer (SRO). We are excited to have a full time police officer on campus.  I hope that you have had the opportunity to meet Officer John Minor. We believe that he will be a big asset to the district.
You will also notice that there is an increased police presence on our campuses. Our local police department and the Upshur County Sheriff’s Office will be making regular drop-in visits to our campuses. Also as part of Governor Abbott”s safety plan, DPS (Department of Public Safety) officers will be dropping in at random times to eat lunch or breakfast, visit with staff and students or just be a presence in the parking lot. So don’t be alarmed if you see several police vehicles here during the school day.


We are very thankful to our law enforcement agencies and for the increased presence in our district.
