Emergency Communication Protocols

How we will communicate in case of an emergency:

In case of a natural or manmade disaster while your child is at school, the School and District will communicate with you in a variety of ways through our Student Information System. We will send a text  and email message to the phone numbers and email which we have on file. We also may send a voicemail, post on social media channels and  post updates to our school and district websites as often as we are able. We also regularly work closely with our local radio and TV stations.


Natural disasters such as a tsunami or earthquake or fire:

We have evacuation plans in place in the event we need to evacuate a school site. We work with our other schools, other districts in our county, our city and county officials as well as law enforcement to ensure a safe relocation of students and staff. We will communicate with parents where to pick up their children.

 


Our procedures for releasing students

For students over the age of 14, we will check their Emergency Card. If the parent has checked the box saying we can release them in case of an emergency, we will release them to go home. If the parent has not checked the box saying we can release their child, we will keep the students on campus or at the evacuation site until someone listed on their Emergency Card arrives. We will check a photo ID in order to match the student with a person on their Emergency Card.

For students under the age of 14 we will keep the students on campus or at the evacuation site until someone listed on their Emergency Card arrives. We will check a photo ID in order to match the student with a person on their Emergency Card.
