Emergency Preparedness

Schools practice safety procedures throughout the school year to know how to respond to any emergency situation.

What's the Plan

Adams 12 Five Star Schools utilizes the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) developed by the I Love U Guys Foundation in collaboration with the Five Star District and law enforcement. The SRP is based not on individual scenarios but on the response to any given situation. 

Safety and Emergency Drills

Preparation is the key to effective response in case of an emergency. Drills help our staff and students respond quickly, calmly and safely to a number of situations.

Example of a Lockdown Drill

Types of Drills

  • Fire - monthly
  • Lockdown - 2x a year 
  • Shelter - 2x a year

District Policy 3510 - Emergency Response outlines drill requirements. [Spanish]

The goal of each of these drills is to teach confidence and allow students and staff to be "emergency prepared not emergency scared." Conducting drills allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of our evacuation procedures and determine any necessary changes or adjustment to current practices that may be needed to improve performance.
