To the Families of Frederiksen Elementary,
In our continuing effort to provide for the safety of the children at
It is impossible to foresee all the potential emergencies, but we are researching the most effective way to use our resources to respond immediately to those emergencies that cannot be avoided. Any disaster will cause inconvenience to all of us. We, as a school administrators, members of the School Safety Team and you as parents, share the responsibility of emergency response.
We are implementing, plans to provide for the safe care of your child in the event of any type of disaster. Our plan involves releasing your child to you when safe and as soon as possible. The plan also includes measures to continue caring for our students if parents are at work or for any reason unable to receive their child. We are working on the details regarding the safe and systematic parent pickup of all students.
IN MOST EMERGENCIES YOUR CHILD WILL REMAIN AND BE CARED FOR AT OUR SCHOOL. In the rare event of an emergency affecting our school that prohibits entry into a building (such as a broken gas or water main) students and staff will be moved immediately to an alternate site (to be announced).
WE ASK YOU TO FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE IF YOU HEAR RUMOR OF ANY SCHOOL EMERGENCY:
1. Turn on radio or television. We will keep the media accurately informed of any emergency
· Local radio stations such as KKIQ 101.7 FM will be a good resource.
2. Please DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL! We have limited phone lines. These MUST be used to respond to the emergency.
3. Please DO NOT COME TO THE SCHOOL (UNLESS NOTIFIED) TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD. Any emergency involving our school will require immediate access to the building by emergency vehicles and disaster workers. When any police investigation is occurring, parents, or any other person not part of the police action WILL NOT be allowed on the campus or the surrounding areas. The presence of other people on campus will just complicate the duties of the police, and prolong the reuniting of the students and parents.
Our entire staff, teachers, office personnel, administrators along with
