Run Hide Fight is a safety protocol recognized by law enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security. The Ozark School District chose to implement the Run Hide Fight method because it shows students and staff they have options in threatening situations. The District believes that knowing your options — run, hide or fight — increases your chance of survival.
Shown to students at Middle School, Junior High and High School levels, and to all District staff, the video is designed to teach and empower students and staff to know how to react should they ever find themselves in a threatening situation — whether that be at school, at a restaurant or at the grocery store.
This video is also designed as a tool for parents and the community as a whole. Parents may want to watch this video and discuss it with their children. And while the video is made for older students and adults, some parents may consider showing this video to their elementary-age children.
