School busesAll District schools will dismiss 15 minutes early on Friday, November 4 for a state-mandated Emergency Go Home Drill. This drill must be completed at least once each school year, and it must not occur more than 15 minutes prior to the normal student dismissal time.

This drill tests each school’s procedures for an early dismissal.

All students will be sent home to their emergency drop off location indicated on the Student Verification Form. Please be sure that any changes to your child’s emergency drop off location are made by November 2. Emergency dismissal locations for elementary school students must be within the attendance zone of the school they attend or to an approved/licensed daycare.

Parents should expect their children to arrive home approximately 15 minutes earlier than normal.

In the event of a real emergency, parents would be notified through the School Connects phone and email service, and messages would be posted on the District website and social media channels.

This emergency drill, along with fire, lockdown, lockout and bus safety drills, are part of a continued effort to keep our students and staff safe. If you have any questions about this drill, please contact your school’s principal.
