Crossroads School has an organized program of emergency procedures. Different emergency procedures are in place to address natural disasters, civil disasters, intruders and environmentally hazardous disasters.
All full-time faculty and staff are First Aid and CPR certified every two years. There are regular practice drills for fire, earthquake and lockdown emergencies. Each faculty and staff member is part of the overall emergency plan and has specific responsibilities connected to the plan.
In the event of an emergency, no student will be dismissed from school unless a parent (or individual designated by a parent on the reverse of the student’s Enrollment Form in the “DAILY DISMISSAL and EMERGENCY RELEASE TO INFORMATION” Section on file in our office) comes for them.
No child will be allowed to leave with another person, even a relative or babysitter, unless we have written permission to that effect.
All parents, or designated parties, who come for students, must have their student(s) signed-out at the Student Release Gate on 18th Street. Signs will be posted if an alternate location is required. Parent cooperation with this process is mandatory to ensure the safety of all.
We have enough food, water and medical supplies on hand for all children for three days.
If your child has special dietary needs, please contact the administrative assistant to arrange to have a three-day supply of food stored at school.
When an Emergency Strikes:
- Your child’s safety is our first priority.
- Parents should NOT telephone the school. Telephone lines will be needed for emergency communication only.
- Parents will be contacted by email and/or text message.
- If email is not working, call the emergency out-of-state contact hotline: 800-766-1788. Please add the School’s emergency out-of-state hotline number to your cellphone contact list.
