IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY

3 months ago

Emergency Management Procedures

A detailed emergency preparedness plan is available in your school office.

All schools are prepared for a variety of emergency situations including violence, weather, medical or transportation related.

Lockdown—In the event total security within a building is necessary, all classroom and exterior doors are locked with no entry or exit from the building until the crisis is over.

Evacuation—In the event the school must be evacuated, all students and staff will be transported by buses to an emergency relocation site. Once everyone is accounted for, students will be released to a parent or guardian.

Locked Doors—The school staff have been instructed to keep the perimeter doors locked at all times for the safety of the students and staff of the school. All visitors must check in and obtain a visitor pass at the main office.

Emergency Information—Parents are encouraged to listen to local radio stations and check the district website (www.laramie1.org) for additional information in the event of an emergency. Parents may also receive an emergency notification from ShoutPoint, the district’s rapid communication system.

Should there ever be a threatening situation or an emergency on a school campus and for the safety of your child(ren) and all students:

• Please remain as calm as possible.

• Please do not attempt to go to the school. Access routes and streets need to be clear for emergency vehicles. Traffic congestion will make emergency response much more difficult for first responders, including law enforcement, fire departments, and ambulances, to get to the school to deal with the emergency quickly and efficiently. This is an issue of safety for all concerned.

• Please remain at home or at work to make it easier for officials to contact you, if this becomes necessary.  If schools have the need to mass evacuate students off site, students will be taken by bus to an alternate location—you will be given information through the media and through ShoutPoint as to how and when to pick up your children.

• Please do not call your child on his/her cell phone.  If numerous people are using cell phones at one location, it will jam the airways, which will overload the system and could prevent emergency and school officials from using their emergency communication devices. This would seriously hinder efforts to assist students. Schools also hope to limit student use of cell phones for the same reason. However, school personnel will work with students on the use of their personal cell phones and text messaging in an emergency to keep you informed with the most accurate and reliable information possible and to reduce anxieties.

• Please do not call your child’s school building, as telephone lines will need to remain open to deal with the emergency. If the phone system becomes overloaded, it will hinder efforts to help students and to provide valuable information.

• Stay tuned to local TV and radio stations for ongoing information and emergency instructions.

• Check for updates on our homepage, www.laramie1.org

• Remember, in an emergency, school officials will need your assistance. Thank You!
