IMPORTANT: At the beginning of every school year you receive a lot of forms to fill out, including the Emergency Card. Please fill it out every year and return to the school office.
In the event of an emergency such as an earthquake while your child is at school, you may find that it is difficult to contact your school as phone service may be interrupted or staff may be tending to students’ needs. School staff will stay with your child until you, or an adult you previously authorized on the Emergency Card, can pick up your child. When you arrive at the school, staff will help you properly sign your child out.
Students may be moved to another location to provide better and more direct care. This decision will be made by the district administration and emergency personnel based current conditions, including the building safety and the duration of time that students may need to remain in the care of school staff. If relocation is necessary, schools will post signage at the site letting you know where your child is being cared for. This information will also be posted on the district’s website and shared with the media.
