Every campus in CCISD utilizes a Standard Respose Protocol for campus emergencies. This has been coordinated with our local First Responders. Together, we take the job of student safety very seriously. We will continue to work with our local First Responders to practice and improve our emergency response.
Conducting regular evacuation drills will give us the knowledge and confidence to escape a fire safely. We feel there are two steps for a good evacuation program - planning and practice. Planning gives us the information we will need ahead of time to evacuate safely. Working together with a Safety Team, an evacuation plan has been created to meet the specific needs of our building and its occupants. The plan is clear and concise. This plan is reviewed and edited as needed each year.
Once we are outside, we stay outside. Until the proper authorities say it is okay we do not re-enter the building.
School officials have worked to develop a hazardous response plan which establishes shelter areas and also plans for monitoring and evaluating tornado drills or other hazards requiring shelter.
We have a plan dictating exactly what to do when a shelter drill sounds. All school personnel are familiar with established procedures and review them periodically.
In addition to the above-mentioned drills, we have safety procedures in place in the event that there are other emergencies which require us to perform a building "lock down" or a "lock out". For the safety of our students, those procedures will not be listed here. If you have questions about our safety procedures, please contact our campus administration.
