School Safety: Emergency Tips

Student Emergency Tips

  • Take all emergency drills seriously
  • Follow law enforcement, teacher and site administrator instructions
  • If you see something, say something - Don't spread it- report it! This is the best deterrent to potentially harmful situations. We want everyone on our campus, including parents and guardians to be empowered to report any unusual or suspicious activity.  

Parent/ Guardian Emergency Tips

  • REMAIN CALM! Employees at each of our campuses regularly train in emergency procedures in numerous scenarios. They will do everything possible to keep your child safe.
  • DON’T CALL THE SCHOOL. The phone lines need to be kept open for emergency calls and staff may not be available to answer calls. The first priority during an emergency is to keep students and employees safe. Communication will be sent to parents/guardians as soon as possible. (See section below for emergency communications information)
  • DON’T IMMEDIATELY DRIVE TO THE SCHOOL. Additional presence on campus could impede the ability of emergency and law enforcement vehicles to access the school. Please wait for specific instructions from the school or district. Depending on the situations the reunification may be at an alternative location.
  • YOUR CHILD WILL ONLY BE RELEASED TO ADULTS LISTED ON THEIR EMERGENCY CONTACT LIST! Please ensure that your child's school has the most recent contact information on file - Update Contact Information. At the conclusion of an emergency, be sure to bring your identification to the reunification area in order for your student to be released to you.
