Safety and Security
School safety is one of our top priorities at Fremont Public Schools. We enforce many policies and procedures to safeguard our students. Fremont Public Schools encourages all students – if you see something, say something and if you know something, tell someone.
In alignment with the
Nebraska Department of
Fremont Public Schools uses
the “I Love You Guys”
Standard Response Protocol
(SRP), as an immediate
response to emergency situations.
This is the vocabulary of the Standard Response Protocol and the FPS standard:
The Secure Protocol is called when there is a threat or hazard outside of the school building. Normal classroom activities continue, but no one can enter or leave the facility without permission.
LOCKDOWN, LOCKS, LIGHTS, OUT OF SIGHT
Lockdown is called when there is a threat or hazard inside the school building. Lockdown uses classroom and school security actions to protect students and staff from threats.
Evacuate is called when there is a need to move students and staff from one location to another. An example of this is a Fire Alarm.
Shelter is called when specific protective actions are needed based on a threat or hazard. Threat of a tornado would be the most common example for Shelter and something we routinely practice.
Hold in Your Classroom or Area is called when the hallways need to be cleared. A medical emergency is a prime example of when this protocol is put into use.
Posters have been placed in all FPS classrooms
for quick reference by students and staff.

The “I Love You Guys” SRP is in place in thousands of schools around the country and is the standard emergency response recommended by the Nebraska Department of Education. The foundation was started after Emily Keyes was shot and killed in Platte Canyon High School in Bailey, Colorado. During the incident, Emily texted “I Love You Guys” to her parents, this phrase became the foundation’s name.
