School Emergency Plan

Of utmost concern to us, is the safety and well-being of our children at Sacred Heart. We have tried and will continue to try to provide a safe and secure environment for them in the event of an emergency

Should an emergency/crisis (tornado/fire/civil emergency, etc.) take place during the school day when your child/ren are present, Sacred Heart School does have a plan in place. The exact strategy to be followed would depend much on the crisis, but in general terms, it is as follows:

 - Should parents be required to come to school to pick their children up, please ring the bell. Office personnel will contact your children’ classrooms and your children will come down to meet you.

 - In the unusual event of a biological or chemical incident, the civil authorities may require that the building be locked with all students/staff sheltered in place inside the school. Should this occur, no one would be permitted to enter/exit the building without jeopardizing the safety of those within. Pick up would take place when the local authorities determine the area to be safe.

 - Should the nature of the crisis be such that the children would need to move from our school to another facility, please listen to the radio/watch          TV to learn details. Prior arrangements have been made with three other facilities in the area; the one determined would be dependent on the crisis taking place.

 - If your child takes medication, it is advisable that you have some extra medicine kept here locked in the school office, in the event that your child     would be here longer than usual. Please follow exactly, the directives regarding medication that are stated in this handbook.

We have food, water and basic first aid supplies, should they be needed in an emergency. In any event, be assured that the administration, faculty and staff would remain with your children and care for them, should an emergency extend beyond the school day.
