How to Be Prepared for an Emergency - Release After Emergency

To enhance our students' safety and well-being, we are expanding our school's efforts to prepare for an emergency. It is important that you become familiar with the school's emergency procedures and what you should do in the event of an emergency at the school. We encourage you to discuss how you expect your child to behave and respond during an emergency or disaster situation.

The school is prepared to care for your child in the event of an emergency until you or an authorized alternate are able to pick him or her up.

Please note the following procedures:

  • Please do not phone the school following a disaster. We must keep the lines open for outgoing emergency calls.

  • Please, in the event of a lockdown, do not phone your child's cell phone. A ringing phone can call attention to students.

  •  Please do not drive to the school. Streets and access to the school must remain clear for emergency vehicles. Park as close as you safely can and walk to the school.

  •  Listen and watch for updates - school will use a variety of communication tools including phone trees, e-mail, traditional and social media to alert parents of the current situation and next steps.

  •  As soon as school officials indicate it is safe to pick up your child, we request you or your alternate guardian travel to the school or identified student-parent reunification site to reunite with your child.

  •  No student will be released from the school unless a previously authorized parent/guardian or alternate comes for the student.

  •  All parents/alternates who come to pick up children must sign the students out at a designated student release area.

  •  Please familiarize yourself with the school's emergency preparedness plans and procedures.

  •  Prepare your child's comfort kit which will be kept in the classroom.  

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance. This process helps to ensure a speedy reunion for you and your child and contributes to the safety and well-being of your child in an emergency.

Thank you,

Galyna Volyanska Principal
