We use codes that signal a particular type of emergency and what to do. Here are the codes used:
- BLACK - Bomb Threat. Depending on the information and location, students may or may not be evacuated.
- ORANGE - Evacuate the building due to strange odor or unsafe situation
- YELLOW - Lockdown. Only the school's Safe Team may move about campus
- RED - Lockdown. Only the police may move about campus
We conduct pratice drill thoughout the year to stay prepared.
The school's Safe Team consists of the Principal, Assistant Principals, Guidance Counselors, Security and School Resource Officer. We meet on a regular basis to review drill situations and discuss and modify procedures. All Safe Team members have received specialized training in emergency procedures.
Fire and Code Red Drills
Schools conduct at least 10 of these drills a year. Drills happen at different times of the day during the school year.
