Safety

  • The safety of all students and all adults on our school property is of the utmost importance. Each of the TTUSD schools has developed a Safe School Plan as part of SB187 (Comprehensive Safe School Planning). These Safe School Plans are available for your viewing.

    In addition, each site has been trained in the National Incident Management System for responding to an emergency.

    Each site typically participates in 10 emergency drills every school year. Local law enforcement and fire services often offer additional assistance during many of these drills. We appreciate the support they've given us!
     

     

  • Emergency Preparedness and Procedures
    The safety of all students and all adults on our school property is of the utmost importance. Each of the TTUSD schools has developed a Safe School Plan as part of SB187 (Comprehensive Safe School Planning). These Safe School Plans are available for your viewing.

    Contact your site's administrator for this information. In addition to this, each site has been trained in the National Incident Management System for responding to an emergency. Each site typically participates in 10 emergency drills every school year. We commonly have the additional assistance of law enforcement and fire services during many of these drills, and the support they've given us is appreciated.

    What Each Parent Should Know: Emergencies
    Part of preparing our schools is preparing our parents Imagine that a chlorine spill occurs in the middle of town, and several of our schools are in a "Shelter-in-Place" situation. That means students and staff are within the classrooms with all windows, doors, and air vents sealed off for added protection. Law enforcement and fire indicate to the district that we will be remaining in our situation for up to six hours.

    What you should do:
    -Remain calm and listen to local radio stations for information.
    -Know that students and staff have prepared for such a scenario ahead of time. Join your child after the conclusion of the event at the student/parent reunification location. Locations will be announced through our local radio stations. Whoever is picking up your child must be on your current student emergency card and they must have a photo ID with them.
    -Listen to the local radio and TV for information. These are the outlets that will get the most up-to-date info. 

    What you should NOT Do:
    -Do not call the school!  We have limited phone lines at the school, and you could tie them up.
    -Do not come to the school! We have limited entrances and exits to each site. You could get in the way of emergency vehicles that have come to our aid.

    In conclusion, please know that all staff and students continue to be trained to handle emergency situations. We will continue to test and refine all of our systems this school year. You may contact your site principal for information specific to your school site. 

    "Not my Child!"  The truth is that most students do not involve themselves with drugs, but some do. You, as their parent, are the first line of defense in making sure your child refrains from experimenting or hanging around those who may be using drugs. You are your child's most important role model. They notice everything you do and they remember what you say, when it is said often. Here are some things to consider that apply to children, regardless of their age.

    Make yourself aware of:
    Your child's friends and their families.
    Your child's whereabouts.
    Your child's academic progress in school throughout the year.
    Your child's behavior in school throughout the  year. Be in touch with your child's teacher/school counselor on a regular basis.
    How your child looks when they leave your home and when they return.
    Talk with (not at) your children often. Ask  who, what, when, where?

    Update Your Child's Emergency Card  We need you to make sure that your child's emergency card is accurate. In case of an emergency, your child will be released only to whoever is listed on that card. Contact your school site for any questions you may have.
