Preparing For Emergencies

The health and safety of all our students is our top priority. Should an emergency or disaster situation ever arise in our area while school is in session, please be assured that our school and school district have prepared and continue to update our emergency plans. However, your cooperation is essential to support your child who may be at school when such an emergency occurs.

It is very important that in the event of an emergency/incident, you do not rush to call or come to school, as it may not be safe to do so. We will send urgent communications and updates to the emergency contact on file in PowerSchool via text and/or email as we can.
