Safety IS Priority

MCS School Safety

School safety is more than drills but it is a range of measures and practices aimed at ensuring the well-being of students, educators, and staff at ALL times.

Providing peace of mind when seconds count

MCS takes the safety of our students and faculty extremely serious. We practice school drills and conduct detailed lock down drills with the Florence County Sheriff’s Office. We have an EMR on campus and our staff are CPR & First Aid trained. Our facility is watched by over 100 cameras in and out of the building and is locked 24/7 which makes entry only accessible for those who obtain a key fob.

Physical Safety

This involves creating an environment where students are protected from physical harm, violence, and accidents. Measures include secure building design, emergency drills, and safety protocols. At MCS, safety IS priority!

Bullying Prevention

At MCS, we strive to prevent bullying and cyberbullying, ensuring that students feel safe and respected. Addressing verbal and physical bullying is crucial for maintaining a positive school climate.

Emergency Preparedness

We prepare for emergencies such as natural disasters, fires, and lockdown situations. Regular drills and clear communication protocols help ensure a swift and effective response. Lockdown, tornado, earthquake, and other drills are conducted once a semester. Fire drills are conducted monthly.


At MCS, the ensuring and well-being of students, staff, and parents starts with training. Our staff are trained by certified EMR, EMT, & training officer with Florence County Sheriff’s Department. We equip students with safety protocols.

In the Classroom

A student whose behavior hinders the
teacher’s ability to teach the class efficiently is not permitted. This not only helps our classrooms to be safe and in order but it benefits the safety for all if an emergency situation would occur.


Our students and teachers use the THINK Challenge.

T- Talking is allowed when permission is given to do so. Talking during quiet times can hinder learning.
H – Homework is expected at the start of each day it is due.
I – Inappropriate behavior is not allowed to ensure a safe and peaceful learning environment.
N – Not following directions can hinder your learning and others’ learning.
K – Keeping off task can only cause one to get behind. Try to stay focused and on the task at hand.
