Not in our schools
Our schools are currently the safest place for our kids. Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) is committed to promoting positive learning environments for our students. That begins with ensuring our schools are safe places to learn and grow. 
There have been no shootings in our schools, and no one has been hurt. But we’ve seen the symptoms, which is why we are taking a stand to address these symptoms and stop violence in our schools before it starts by declaring loud and clear: Not in our schools.
Alongside families and community partners, MPS is declaring our district to be a weapon-, violence- and gang-free zone. Together, we can let everyone know: Not in our schools.
If your student has any concerns, please encourage them to connect with any of our staff members. Students can also anonymously report situations using the Speak Up tipline by calling 1.866.SPEAK.UP or texting SPEAKUP to 847-411.
