Active Assailant Information
Please know that your child's health and safety is our number one concern here at Gulf Beaches Elementary School, and throughout the Pinellas County School System. In order to help keep your child safe the school system has now put into place safety protocol, including drills to be prepared if we ever had an active assailant on campus, or in the surrounding neighborhood. Please understand that these plans were created by the school system and local law enforcement agencies working side by side. Please use the link below to be directed to the PCS Safety and Security webpage, there you will find the video which will be shared with all staff throughout Pinellas County Schools. Please contact your child's teacher if you have further questions or concerns.
