• During the 2017-18 school year, Ozark School District began training students and staff the Run Hide Fight concept for intruder drills. The District also hosted a community safety night to extend that training to parents and the community. This year, the safety discussion continues through a Run Hide Fight video.

    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.
