Emergency Preparedness

The School District of Washington is committed to taking proactive measures to protect the safety of all of our students and staff members. We have made preparations to deal effectively with emergency situations that could occur in or around the school while classes are in session. While we hope that a natural disaster or other serious incident never occurs, our goal is to be as prepared as possible for any potential emergency. Our priority at all times is to protect all students and staff from harm.

The district and all school facilities have crisis and safety plans. The plans are designed with the assistance of administrative staff members, as well as local law enforcement, emergency management and public health officials. The plans, which are regularly reviewed and updated, include procedures to respond to a variety of crisis incidents. School district personnel practice drills associated with some of these specific emergencies on a regular basis (i.e. fire, tornado and school intruder).

If you have any questions about your school's safety and support response, please contact your building administrator.
