Safe Schools Plan
When the news breaks that an emergency is taking place at a school, every parent's first reaction is to rush to the campus to pick up his or her child. The fact is, numerous parents arriving at a school at the same time can increase the risk to students. Here are some tips for parents when an emergency occurs on or near a Deer Valley campus.
- Check this website's home page for updated information.
- Check your email, texts and phone messages for information that the school will send out via SchoolMessenger.
- Know to which location your campus will evacuate. (Listing of reunification locations.)
All Deer Valley schools have developed comprehensive emergency response plans which have been reviewed by local police and fire officials, as well as the district's insurance carrier. In addition, campuses hold regular fire and lockdown drills and have completed tabletop crisis drills with emergency experts.
