Safety & Security Guidelines

  • Safety is the product of teamwork. If you notice any unsafe condition, bring it to the attention of your supervisor or building principal immediately. Please do not assume someone has already reported the situation.

    Everyone has a responsibility to be alert to the security issues that surround us each and every day. Employees should report any unusual occurrences, suspicious activities/individuals, or thefts to his/her supervisor or building principal. Keep your personal belongings such as purses, wallets, and toiletries in a closed, secure location. Do not use LIU equipment for communications that are so private you would not want someone to listen or read them. When you work before or after your normal hours, make sure you park in a well-lighted area, especially after dark. Be sure to keep doors locked. Check around the building to find out if anyone else is present and visually check the parking lot before exiting the building. Be sure to secure the building when you depart.

    Review the school safety plan, keep a copy in your desk, and follow the procedures outlined in the plan.

    Keeping communication open is the responsibility of both the employee and supervisor. Taking advantage of the opportunity to resolve problems or misunderstandings before they affect you and your job performance is vital to the success of you and your career, as well as Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12. It is important that you feel positive about your job and yourself, and that you take pride in what you do.

    Problems or need for assistance should first be brought to the attention of your immediate supervisor. If the problem is not satisfactorily resolved, the employee should contact the Division Director, and if further assistance is required, meet with the Director of Human Resources who will advise you on other steps you may use to remedy your concern.
