Emergency Information - What to Expect in an Emergency


The safety and wellbeing of students and staff is always a priority, particularly in a crisis or emergency situation.  Emergency situations can range from man-made problems such as power outages and fires to natural disasters like blizzards and floods. These may be highly dangerous situations or mere inconveniences for our students and staff.
 
When the Superintendent declares an emergency or the Superintendent is notified by the County Emergency Director or other authority that an emergency/disaster exists, (s)he will begin implementing the District’s emergency plan. The degree of the emergency and subsequent actions will be determined based upon information supplied by the Building Administrator of the affected building, County Emergency Coordinator, Civil Defense Officials and other authorities.
 
The District’s emergency management plan can be found on the District website HERE.
