Should an emergency or disaster situation arise in our area while school is in session, we want you to be aware that our school staff has prepared, and continues to update plans to meet such situations.
Your cooperation is essential to support your child/children who may be at school when such an emergency occurs. These are some of the most important things you can do:
- Do not telephone the school (telephone lines may be needed for emergency communications).
- Walk (don’t drive) to school to pick up your child/children. (Streets must be kept open for emergency vehicles).
- Tune your radio to KFI 640 AM, KNX 1070 AM or KFWB 980 AM for emergency announcements.
- Come to the Reunion Gate 1, located near the computer lab, to sign out your child/children. You may then proceed to Reunion Gate 2, near the cafeteria, to pick up your child/children. Children will be escorted from the field by staff and designated volunteers. Parent /Guardians will be asked to wait at the gate for children.
- All children will be kept at school until we are able to make some type of contact with you. Our staff knows hat each staff member automatically becomes a civil defense employee in times of emergency and is required by law to remain on campus to assist until dismissed by the principal.
- The school is equipped with emergency medical supplies, water and various types of needed equipment and tools Staff members and volunteers are in an ongoing process of being trained by the Red Cross to administer First Aid and CPR. Watch for announcements for how you can be involved in the training. The more prepared our school and community members are, the safer our children will be.
TUSD Emergency Card – Green
The "TUSD Emergency Card" has been revised. You will need to complete only one card for each student. The card will be separated with one part going to the classroom teacher and one part remaining in the office.
At all times, it is necessary to have current information regarding home and work telephone numbers, place of employment, childcare address and telephone number, and people who will be able to attend to your child/children in the event of illness or emergency. If any information on the emergency card needs to be changed during the school year please contact the school office immediately.
Since students will be released only to those persons designated on the emergency card, it is important to record as many people as you deem appropriate who will be able to pick up and care for your child/children. Please be sure each person on the card is aware they are on the card. He or she may be called, by the school, to pick up your child/children in the event of illness or emergency. Please do not list those who are more than 30 minutes away or out of state on this card.
