Parents/guardians are required to provide up-to-date information regarding emergency phone numbers, parents’/guardians’ work numbers and any other information which may be necessary if the school needs to reach a parent/guardian in the case of emergency. This information will be utilized by the teaching staff or the nurse to notify parents/guardians if there is a concern or an emergency whereby your child needs to be dismissed early. You will fill out this information on a student profile form at the start of the school year.
There is also a district-based telephone program called Blackboard Connect that allows us to call all parents/guardians simultaneously to provide information or relay a message. This program is used to notify families of school cancelations, delayed openings, or early dismissals due to weather conditions, or if the building must be evacuated due to other emergencies. Evacuation policies, such as “fire drills”, are practiced with students throughout the school year.
