Emergency Procedures FAQS

  • Earthquake, Fire, and Lock Down

  • A Parent Square callout will be made as soon as possible.  Also, please check the written format (email) associated with the callout for any clarification.

  • Please avoid calling the office.  Office staff will be busy securing the safety of students.

  • No. Your child will never be left unattended and students will not be released until all students and staff have been accounted for.  Having parents on-site will only take away resources that should be directed towards all students.

  • The emergency card is vital to contacting parents and emergency contacts listed on the card, during emergency situations.

  • The Gate where a parent/emergency contact may request to pick up a child during an emergency type of situation. The Emergency Request Gate is located on the North-West side of our staff parking lot.

  • This is where students are released to parents during an emergency situation. The gate is located on the North-East side of the staff parking lot.

  • This will depend on the type of emergency. When and if the administration/staff feels it is safe to call parents, students will be allowed to use their cell phone to communicate a very limited and scripted message to prevent the distribution of misinformation.

  • Parents need some form of identification.

  • Students are never allowed to walk home without a parent, or an adult on the emergency card signing them out through the office.

  • A neighbor or friend may only pick up a child if they are properly identified on the Emergency Card.

  • This is a plan you and your family should discuss. Where do family members meet? Who picks up kids? Do kids know who is on the emergency card? Do family members know home evacuation routes?

  • This is important to know as you may need to shut off valves to keep you and your family safe, and decrease the risk of possible property damage through bursting water lines or gas explosions.

  • Anything is better than nothing. At a minimum, you should have water, a first aid kit, canned or dried food, flashlights, a battery operated radio, batteries or solar power supply, access to tools like a hammer, a crow-bar, a tarp, tape, etc. Also consider a small emergency kit that you always carry in your car. Same items may be included, but add a pair of latex and leather gloves, sneakers, and a blanket.
