We consider student and staff safety to be a top priority and we are prepared for major emergency situations. School staffs have been trained, and drills are held regularly to make certain our students and staff understand emergency procedure
Your student may even be safer at school than at home in a serious emergency because school buildings are earthquake safe and have been designed with safety in mind. Inspections are regularly made to remove possible hazards and staff trained in first aid are available. Safety and welfare of the students is our primary concern in the event of an emergency.
Your student should be instructed to follow the directions of the teacher at the school site and follow the directions of the bus driver on the way to and from school. If walking, riding bicycles, or driving cars, students should be told to continue toward their destination (to or from school) when an emergency situation develops.
Your cooperation is requested in the following areas:
- Do not telephone the school. Telephone lines will be needed for emergency calls.
- Do not drive to school. Streets need to be as open as possible for emergency vehicles.
- Do turn your radio to KKLQ 600 or KCBQ 1170 on the AM dial. Information and directions will be given over the radio.
As suggested by the Escondido Union High School District Disaster Preparedness Plan, we want to take this opportunity to urge each family to make home emergency plans and preparations.
If you have questions about our emergency preparedness program, please contact the Assistant Principal's office at 291-6020.
