EMERGENCY PROCEDURES


EMERGENCY PROCEDURES


In preparation for a real emergency or disaster periodic emergency drills are conducted to ensure that our safety procedures are understood and correctly implemented.
  • A "drop, cover, and hold" command is given to students, who then seek cover under desks and tables. They are also instructed to move away from buildings and overhead structures.

  • Students and staff are directed to evacuate classrooms and move to an emergency assembly area.
  • The school principal establishes a command center. A first-aid station is set up and emergency supplies are distributed.

  • All gates except the "REUNION GATE" are locked. Main utility lines are inspected and shut off if necessary.

  • A "Search and Rescue" team inspects all classrooms, office, closets, restrooms, library, labs and other work spaces.  Reports are made to the command center.

  • Injuries are assessed and first aid is administered by qualified personnel. A damage estimate is also taken. The District "Emergency Operations Center" is contacted by radio or telephone. The fire department and paramedics are summoned, if necessary. Portable radios are tuned in to radio stations KFWB(980 AM), KNX (1070 AM) or KCRW (89.9 FM) to determine the extent of damage to outlying areas.

  • STUDENTS WILL BE RELEASED ONLY TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE NAMED ON THE EMERGENCY CARD.  TO PICK UP STUDENTS, PARENTS/GUARDIANS SHOULD REPORT TO THE REUNION GATE.  STUDENTS WILL NOT BE RELEASED WITHOUT PARENTAL AUTHORIZATION.  NO STUDENTS WILL BE PERMITTED TO WALK OR BIKE HOME.  IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT PARENTS KEEP EMERGENCY CARD INFORMATION UP TO DATE.

  • "REUNION GATE" is USUALLY located on 4th Street at the gate between the track and the Doubletree Hotel. Parent/Guardian need to bring proof of identification.   Please park at the Civic Auditorium.  Be patient, it will take a while to escort your student.  Our first priority is the safety of all students and staff.  The secondary Reunion Gate would be at 7th and Michigan.
