4110 | Emergency Preparedness Policy

Date Approved: March 13 2012
Date Reviewed/Amended: October 09 2018


The Board of Education is committed to providing high standards of health, safety, and security for all students, staff and visitors. The purpose of this policy and its accompanying regulations is to ensure that action plans are prepared for emergencies that might threaten the personal safety or life of persons on school district activities, both on and off district premises, or threaten district facilities.

An emergency is a sudden, unexpected occurrence requiring immediate action to stabilize a situation. Emergencies affecting school activities and facilities for an unspecified period of time include, but are not limited to:

  • earthquake
  • fire
  • tsunami
  • hazardous material accident/spills
  • threats to schools (e.g. intruders, bomb threats)
  • transportation accident
  • severe weather

 

The Board recognizes the importance of developing appropriate plans and procedures to deal with such emergencies. It is also important that students, employees and parents are knowledgeable about the various emergency plans and procedures in order to be as prepared as possible in the event of an actual emergency. To this end:

  1. all employees shall be informed about the emergency plans and procedures to be followed at their work site, to ensure their safety and the safety of others;
  2. students and employees shall practice the emergency plans and procedures implemented at their school or work site;
  3. parents shall be advised of the emergency procedures developed at the school(s) where their child(ren) are attending and/or when being transported; and
  4. materials and supplies kept on hand to support school emergency procedures shall be in good order.
