Safety & Security
Safety and Security preparedness is always a focus at MCS. School safety is the responsibility of everyone – students, staff, parents and visitors. MCS contracts with Legacy Life Security to provide School Safety Officers (SSOs) to cover all MCS facilities. Legacy Life Security is led by Robert Scaife, a longtime Muncie resident and former Muncie Police Department detective.
Each SSO undergoes regular trainings in the areas of CORE strength, youth mental health first aid, cultural competency, active shooter, Stop the bleed (first aid and CPR), firearms training & qualifications, and other specialties.
Together with Legacy Life Security, we are constantly reviewing processes for effectiveness, which includes identifying areas that need improvement. This proactive process helps us ensure that our students can maximize their learning potential within a safe and secure environment.

Muncie Community Schools operates a Safety Tip Line which is available to anyone who wants to report information related to school safety in a confidential manner. The number can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Calls are anonymous and confidential.
Muncie Community Schools makes every effort to notify school families in the event of school closings or delays. If school is canceled or delayed, we will utilize our school messaging system to message families through phone, email and SMS texts. Please review and update your students' information in PowerSchool to ensure messages will be received. In addition, we will also post alerts to our website and social media accounts and provide updates to local media outlets.
