Emergency Response Procedures

Emergency Response Procedures for Parents

The safety of PRSD students and staff is our number one priority.  PRSD works closely with police, health, and other safety officials to ensure our preparedness in the event of an emergency. We review and update our Emergency Response Plan regularly, conduct fire and shelter drills, and provide training to our faculty and staff. In the event of an emergency, it is essential that we have full cooperation of all involved. These guidelines will assist parents in knowing what to do in the event of a school emergency. Emergency Response Procedures for Parents

Keep Information Current!

It is absolutely essential that parents follow the directions provided by school district or emergency personnel, even though instincts may guide them otherwise. 

School officials will rely on contact information supplied by parents at the beginning of each school year.  If your information changes, be sure to update your eSchooldata Parent Portal account or notify your school office.  Be mindful of cell phone and work phone number changes as well as home phones.  Your phone and email information from your Parent Portal is what is used to send important district and school communications through our SchoolMessenger notification system to communicate important broadcasts such as school closings or other emergency situations by phone, email and text messages . PRSD also uses this system to send emails and texts pertaining to general district and school information and events.  Parents are automatically enrolled to receive phone calls and emails using their contact data in their eSchoolData Parent Portal account.  The majority of our communications are through email.  If you are not receiving emails from PRSD or your child's school, your contact information is not current in your Parent Portal! 

 It is also important to keep current the list of other adults you approve to pick up your child in the event of an emergency.
