Online learning recommenced across the district on Monday, Jan. 4. Visit PV Assist for online resources.
The safety and security of our students is our highest priority. Our school and the school district regularly plan and practice to ensure we are prepared for emergencies. This letter will inform you of some of the procedures we will follow to protect our students during an emergency.
During an emergency school administrators will secure the campus in what is called a lockdown. Classroom doors are locked, gates to the campus are closed and locked, and no one is permitted to enter or exit the campus until school administrators give the all-clear signal. If there is an immediate danger, teachers will stop lessons, closed window blinds, turn off lights, and direct students to the most secure area of the classroom or building. School personnel work closely with public safety officials during emergencies.
Students may be kept on campus. In the event of a chemical spill or other immediate danger to health and safety, public safety officers may direct the school to keep students on campus, even after school hours, until the all-clear signal is given.
Students may be relocated off campus. An emergency situation may require students to be relocated to a location different from their home school. The five district high schools serve as relocation sites for all schools. Updated information by telephone dialer, email, and text messaging will apprise parents of the relocation site.
I strongly encourage you to check and update your student’s Emergency Card and School Year Medication Record with a list of authorized contacts, health conditions, and medications needed. Please call me if you have any questions or concerns about our emergency plans or procedures.
