Please review the following safety procedures with your child. We practice safety drills all year.

Remember

  • Bikes, skateboards, scooters, and rollerblades may NOT be ridden on campus.
  • All visitors must first check in at the office to sign and receive a campus pass.

Facility Alert  

A facility alert is called when a potentially hazardous situation occurs. 

Inside the building:

  • Students will be escorted to a safe area in the MPR away from windows and doors. 
  • Students will remain in the building until the principal gives an all-clear signal. 
  • Parents will be allowed to pick up their students during the alert. 
  • Note: All visitors on campus during a facility alert drill will follow the same procedures. During an actual alert, all visitors will be asked to immediately leave campus or report to the office.

Campus Lockdown  

A campus lockdown is called when a serious threat exists to students and staff.

Inside the building: 

  • A siren or black hurricane whistles will sound a warning. 
  • All doors will be immediately locked. 
  • Students will remain in the classroom/building until released. 
  • Students will immediately move away from windows and doors and sit on the floor. 
  • Students will remain quiet until the principal gives an all-clear signal. Law enforcement will authorize the principal to end the lockdown. 
  • No students will be allowed to leave the building until law enforcement authorizes the end of the lockdown. 


Outside the building: 

  • A siren or black hurricane whistles will sound a warning. 
  • Students not in a classroom/building will move quickly to the MPR (or other designated safe location) where designated adults will meet them. 
  • Once inside a building, students will be escorted to a safe area away from windows and doors. 
  • Students will sit and remain quiet and orderly. 
  • Students will remain in the building until the principal gives an all-clear signal. Law enforcement will authorize the principal to end the lockdown. 
  • No students will be allowed to leave the building until law enforcement authorizes the end of the lockdown. 
  • If necessary, an off-campus pick-up zone will be used for student pick-up. Our off-campus pick-up zone is Riverpark Bible Church on the corner of Alluvial and Millbrook. Students will not be released to parents until law enforcement authorizes the principal to release students for pick-up. 
  • Note: All visitors on campus during a lockdown drill will follow the same procedures. During an actual lockdown the safety of our students will be the first consideration. Depending on the emergency, visitors may be required to remain in the building or leave campus. Law enforcement will make that determination.
