In Case of a School-Based Emergency


In Case of a School-Based Emergency

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 offered.

=         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.
