Southside ISD is committed to all safety and security protocols and solutions. Cardinals CARE (C- Compassionate, A- Accepting, R – Respectful, and Empowered) is an initiative inspired by parents, community members, students, security experts, and staff input. Southside ISD recently held a Safety and Security committee meeting where ideas and critiques were shared. Although we have many programs, protocols, and procedures in place, one of the district’s numerous efforts includes communicating ways to prevent harmful activities to all staff and students. The Cardinals CARE Campaign includes a robust marketing initiative of posters, videos, banners, and incentives to encourage our community to “See Something, Say Something.” The entire program falls under the Stay Alert reporting and detection system the district already has.

Cardinals Care also includes a dress code policy that encourages unity and good behavior. The Cardinal VIP program is also part of the family of incentives that celebrates our outstanding and best-behaved cardinals. In the coming days, be on the lookout for messages from our cardinals on how you can help us all stay alert and safe.
