Emergency & Safety Guide
Parents and Guardians Have a Key Role in Emergency Response
During and following an emergency situation, school and district officials must act quickly and follow established emergency protocols to safeguard students and staff, secure schools, and communicate accurate information in a timely manner. Parents can assist greatly by helping with preparation before the emergency.
An emergency card will be sent home with each student at the beginning of each school year. Please complete and update the card with current information and return it to the school immediately.

Safety First: Watch for Walkers & Bike Riders
Volusia County students are being injured at alarming rates. Since school opened this year, nine students have been struck and injured by vehicles throughout the county. Please do your part to keep our students safe. Watch out for pedestrians and bicycles. Expect children to be walking or riding bikes to and from school or to their assigned bus stop between the hours of 6:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Obey the speed limits and stay alert. Urge your friends and neighbors to use caution when driving before and after school. We must change this trend and work together to keep our students safe.
