The purpose of our school safety plan is to ensure a safe and secure environment for our children. The driveway in the parking lot needs to be clear in case any emergency vehicle needs to access our school. At dismissal, the buses are in the circle and emergency vehicles need to be able to reach the building by driving through the parking lot. Please park your car with that in mind. There are parking spaces in the back of the school and on Harrison Lane in which you can park while waiting for dismissal.
We have prepared our staff and children with the knowledge of how to act and what to do when an unexpected emergency occurs.
This guide is provided to instruct parents what will exactly happen if indeed we are confronted with an emergency situation.
In case of fire:
1. The alarm will sound.
2. Teachers and children evacuate classrooms.
3. A class list will accompany the teacher and all children will be accounted for.
4. Fire and school officials will check the school.
5. The principal will be notified regarding any additional safety actions as necessary.
If an evacuation of the building and grounds is necessary, the staff and students will proceed down East Street to the Church of the Nativity with the assistance of the State Police. Then parents will be called and students will be sent home.
REMEMBER THIS WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF IT IS UNSAFE FOR CHILDREN TO RETURN TO THE SCHOOL BUILDING.
