Procedures for Parents/Guardians
Shelter-In-Place & Modified Lockdowns
Shelter-in-place and modified lockdowns are specialized lockdowns and the safest possible way to separate students and staff from an outdoor hazardous environment (e.g. natural disaster or danger in the community). It is a temporary solution to a temporary problem. These lockdowns will be used to keep students safe until the emergency has passed or they can be reunited with their parents.
All Lockdown Procedures will apply.
There may be emergency situations when we will need to evacuate the building. Some evacuations may be temporary, allowing school to resume after the all-clear signal is given. Other evacuations may require students to go home. If the school day prematurely ends, please refer to the Student-Parent Reunification procedures.
There may be situations where we will need to evacuate to an alternative site. We have identified several sites that we will use, depending on the situation. We will disclose the location of the specific alternative site when the need for an evacuation is determined. We will communicate the alternative site location via a message on the school’s voice mail, the school’s webpage, and local radio and television stations. You may also contact the district office (222-0861) for more information.
Upon recommendations of the school administration or public safety officials, all buildings will go into lockdown mode. If a severe alert is declared or an emergency situation occurs requiring a lockdown at Park High School, do not panic. Stay as calm as possible. Follow these procedures for the safety of ALL students:
We will be contacting all Clear Channel (FM: 95.1, 96.7, 100.7, 103.5; AM: 1340, 1450) and Yellowstone Public Radio (FM: 88.5, 102.1) stations with pertinent emergency information. Please go to one of those stations to get updates as needed.
In the event of an emergency or disaster situation that requires the students to go home, please remember that Park High School will care for your student until a parent can pick them up, or until it is safe to transport students to their homes by school district transportation.
