Procedures for Student Dismissal During a Disaster
Chaparral conducts monthly emergency drills. In the event of a serious disaster, your child(ren) will only be released to you or the person(s) designated by you on your child's Disaster Release Tag.
Except in case of required school evacuation, the children will be assembled for protection and pick-up on the upper playground of the school or in an area designated as a safe area. (If Chaparral has to be evacuated, we will evacuate as quickly as possible. You will then be notified as soon as possible by school authorities via our electronic phone message system where to pick up your child.)
If we assemble on the yard, the following procedures will be followed:
For safety reasons, we will allow only a few parents at a time to enter the yard via the large gate on the upper yard.
- Report to your child's teacher and intitial the Disaster Release Tag.
- Sign the teacher's check-out list and the tage and give the tag to the school official in charge of the upper yard check out area. This will let us know with whom the child left, in case another authorized person comes for your child later. It is imperative you turn in the signed tag at the gate.
If we remain in the classroom or assemble in the Multi-Purpose room, go directly to the classrooms to get your child(ren).
If the pick-up person is not named on the child's Disaster Release Tag, the pick-up person must report to a school official or an office staff member to obtain permission to take the child home
