Disaster/Emergency Procedures

TemeculaValleyUSD Uniform Lock Down Procedure

 

This action is taken when the threat of violence or gunfire is identified or directed by law enforcement and it is necessary to prevent the perpetrator(s) from entering any occupied campus areas. During Lock Down, students are to remain in the classrooms or designated locations at all time.

 

Description of Action

 

1. The Principal will make the following announcement on the PA system. If the

PA system is not available; the Principal will use other means of communication, i.e., sending messengers to deliver instructions. The Principal should be calm, convey reassuring comments that the situation is under control and give clear directions.

 

“YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE. WE HAVE AN EMERGENCY SITUATION

 AND NEED TO IMPLEMENT LOCK DOWN PROCEDURES.

 

TEACHERS ARE TO LOCK CLASSROOM DOORS AND KEEP ALL STUDENTS INSIDE THE CLASSROOM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

 

DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR UNTIL NOTIFIED BY AN ADMINISTRATOR OR LAW ENFORCEMENT.

 

IF OUTSIDE, STUDENTS AND STAFF ARE TO PROCEED INSIDE TO THE NEAREST BUILDING OR CLASSROOM.”

 

 

2. Once inside, teachers will lock the doors and instruct the students to stay away from the doors and windows.  In the event of an immediate threat of violence the students will be instructed to lie on the floor and remain quiet.

3. If outside, students will proceed to their classrooms if it is safe to do so. If not, teachers or staff will direct students into nearby classrooms or school buildings (e.g., auditorium, library, cafeteria, gymnasium).

4. Teachers and students will remain in the classroom or secured area until further instructions are given by the Principal or law enforcement.

5. All front entrances to the school are to be locked and no visitors other than appropriate law enforcement or emergency personnel are to be allowed on campus.

Parent Responsiblity:

1.  It is so important for you to remain calm at this time. This is best for your child and for those helping to reunite you with your child.

2.  All parents, guardians, or designated parties who come for students need to follow these procedures:

Walk or drive to ARES. Park along Sunny Meadows ONLY. Corbie will be used as the entrance for emergency vehicles.

Please form a single file line outside the back gate. This is the only check-in area.

When you reach the head of the line, you will need to identification in order to check out a child. Your name must be listed on the child's emergency pick up list. A runner will then go get your child from the field and bring them to you.

For security reasons, do NOT attempt to enter the school grounds unless requested and accompanied by a runner.

 

Please be assured that the school site has adequate supplies and have trained the staff in case of such an emergency.
