Should an emergency or disaster situation arise in our area while school is in session, we want you to be aware that our school staff has prepared, and continues to update, plans to meet such situations. Should we have a major earthquake or other disaster during school hours, students will be cared for. Your cooperation is necessary in any emergency. These are some of the most important things you can do:
  1. Make sure the Emergency Cards are current.
  2. Provide your child with his or her 'Student Emergency Kit' that will be kept in the classroom. Information on the kit will be provided at the start of the school year.
  3. Do not telephone the school. Telephone lines may be needed for emergency communications.
  4. Do not drive to school. If you wish to pick up your child, walk to school. Streets must be kept open for emergency vehicles.
  5. Come to the front or back gate to sign-out your child. The appointed school staff will send a messenger to the Student Care Area. Your child will return with the messenger to designated release gates and you will sign your name and time of pick-up (in case another responsible person on your emergency card needs to know if your child has been picked up). Students will only be released to those people on the Emergency Card.
  6. Tune your radio to AM KFI 640, KNX 1070 or KFWB 980 for emergency information.
  7. All children will be kept at school until we are able to make some type of contact with you. The school is equipped with emergency medical supplies, water and various types of needed equipment and tools. Each staff member automatically becomes a civil defense employee in times of emergency and is required by law to remain on campus to assist until dismissed by the principal.
