Dear Parents and Guardians,
Annually, the personnel at every school reviews safety and emergency procedures as well as conducts practice drills including evacuation of students. It is crucial that we develop various scenarios so that in the event of a real emergency, staff and students are prepared to respond without hesitation which will ensure the safety and well-being of everyone.
To ensure the safety of visitors on campus, we require persons entering campus to first register in the main office. In case of an emergency, we need to know there are people other than students or employees who need to be accounted for.
To keep parents informed of what they should do in case of an emergency, we have updated the Quick Links on our website titled RUSD Disaster Preparedness Student Release Procedures. Parents can access the link here
with details of what to do in case of an emergency. The most important thing to remember is to NOT call or come to school when an emergency situation has occurred. This action impedes staff's ability to ensure the safety of all students and diverts the attention and resources of our first responders. The district will communicate with parents to inform them of pertinent information as well as when and where students will be released to a person identified on the student's emergency card.
Don't get a ticket!
Did you know that you are required to stop when a bus has flashing lights displayed and the stop sign is extended? This applies even if you are coming from the opposite direction on a roadway not divided by a median. It is the responsibility of every driver to ensure that our students are safe coming to and from school.
