School Emergencies

In the event of a natural or man-made emergency (e.g., hurricane, tsunami, bomb threat, or release of an unknown substance into the air) that threatens the health and safety of our students and school personnel, please be assured that our school has emergency response plans in place and are required to practice them annually.
 
This is to inform you that in the event of an emergency, your child will be cared for by our staff in accordance with the school plans and guided by emergency response personnel, such as police, fire, and emergency medical services.  
 
At times like these, we ask for your cooperation by:
 
-Remaining where you are and not rushing to the school campus.  This will help to keep the roadways clear and allow emergency responders quick access while not exposing you to danger.
-Listening to the radio or watching the television for information and instructions.  School pick up will remain the same unless you are notified otherwise.
-Avoiding calls to the school so that phone lines are kept open for communication with emergency responders.
-There may be instances when we will need to keep your child(ren) at the school or at the evacuation site to ensure their health and safety.  Please wait for an "all clear" signal from the appropriate authorities before going to the school or evacuation site.  
 
Your attention and assistance are greatly appreciated.  Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.
