Petrosky has five emergency procedures:
- Bad Weather - weather related incidents such as flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes
- Shelter-in-Place - emergency environmental or weather related situation making it necessary to keep all occupants within the school to protect from external conditions
- Evacuation - a crisis that requires staff and students to leave the building for safety, such as fire, bomb threat. If necessary, everyone will be bussed to an alternate location. The location will be posted on the front door of the school.
- Lockdown - major incident or threat to the school based on an internal or external event
- Reunification - after disasters, families need to pick up children from school. This plan is designed for a safe and orderly release.
Staff members have been trained in these procedures to help keep everyone safe. We practice simulated tabletop exercises and campus drills.
In the event of an actual emergency, the school doors will be locked. No student will be released until we are informed by emergency/district officials that the situation has resolved and it is safe to open the doors.
