Emergency Procedures - Disaster

IN THE EVENT OF A MAJOR DISASTER

Information will be broadcast to parents over local television and radio stations (see communication on page 8) Information will also be published in local newspapers, posted at the school site, and posted on the district web page at: www.edmondsschools.org

  • No student will be dismissed from school unless a parent (or individual designated by a parent) comes for him/her.

  • No child will be allowed to leave with another person, even a relative or baby sitter unless we have written permission to that effect or that particular person is listed on the student's Emergency Release Authorization Form (P-139) in our files and is able to identify him/herself.

  • All parents or designated persons who come for students must sign students out at the school office or at the temporary student release station. Signs will be posted if this alternate location is required.

  • We are prepared to care for your child in emergency situations. If you are not able to reach the school, we will care for your child until you or a designated person arrives. We have a number of staff members with first-aid certificates and we will be in communication with local emergency services. We do ask your help in the following ways:

  • Please do not call the school. We must have the lines open for emergency calls.

  • Do turn to radio and television stations or the district web page for information.

  • Following an earthquake or other emergency, do not immediately drive to the school. The school access route and street entrance areas must remain clear for emergency vehicles and/or may be cluttered with debris.

  • School personnel will be involved with emergency response following an emergency or disaster. An orderly plan for student release will be organized. PLEASE ALLOW ONE HOUR FOLLOWING AN EMERGENCY BEFORE COMING TO SCHOOL TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD.
