There are a number of key details about which parents should
be informed in the unlikely event of a school-based emergency:
First and foremost, the safety of our students
and staff is our primary focus and responsibility.
Across the district, building plans and
procedures for crisis response are regularly reviewed, updated, and training
Each building is staffed by a nurse. Personnel with CPR and Medical Emergency
Certification are identified in each building.
As a health/safety precaution, a school campus
may be closed to all visitors except emergency and law enforcement
personnel. If the school campus is
closed, parents will be directed to an identified staging area.
Parents should check the website, local
television, and radio channels for in-formation. Parents may telephone the Central Office, if
necessary, until a staging area for communications is in place and operational. Parents should not call the school
building. Any available school telephone
lines should be kept open for emergency communications.
= If a student is injured during an emergency
situation, every effort will be made to contact the parent/guardian as soon as
possible. It is the parent/guardian’s
responsibility to complete and turn in emergency information sheets and to keep
the information current.
Every family should devise a personal plan to be
put into place in the event of a community-based emergency crisis. This plan should include where to meet, the
location of necessary supplies, a battery-operated flashlight and radio, etc.
