Important Things to Know if There is a Disaster or Emergency During School Hours
- In the event of an emergency DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL OR DISTRICT OFFICE. We will send both a text and email through our alert system (Catapult Connect) to send out a communication to parents/caregivers.
- Each emergency presents a unique set of variables, which will be evaluated prior to any message sent out. Those variables include nature of emergency, time of emergency, estimated duration of emergency, direction given by law enforcement and emergency services agencies, and impact on immediate safety of students and staff. The District's highest priority is to first evaluate and respond to the emergency and ensure the immediate safety of students and staff, and then to notify parents/caregivers as the individual emergency dictates.
- Staff will be notified through their district email account by their Principal/Manager or the district.
- Parents/caregivers are notified by email and/or text. The accuracy of Catapult Connect is dependent on making sure all information is up-to-date in the school district's database. Any adjustments in your contact information can be made by contacting your local school. It is important to keep your contact information up-to-date at all times, even changes in email addresses.
