Warning and Notification

  • Call 911, if necessary. Assess life and safety issues first.
  • Inform Principal at _______________or Assistant Principal at _________________.
  • Principal/Designee notifies Superintendent at _______________________ and Public Relations Department at _______________________.
  • Warn students and staff. If an emergency requires immediate action to protect the safety of students and staff, activate PA Announcements.
  • Use coded words in warning, if necessary. Code should be used in situations in which immediate notification is necessary, but the safety of students and staff may be compromised if everyone in school building knows of emergency. For example, a hostile intruder may panic if principal announces intruder’s presence over the PA system. The codes will inform personnel of the type of emergency and appropriate actions.
