Safe Schools PlanWhen 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.
- Know to which location your campus will evacuate. (Listing of reunification locations.) Be aware that we will generally not move students from one campus to another.
All Deer Valley schools have developed comprehensive 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.
