In the event of an major emergency or disaster, the Morongo Unified School District and each school has a response plan designed to ensure the safety and security of all students and employees.
Students will be evacuated to a safe location at the school. School personnel will remain with students until they are released to parents or transported home. If necessary, students may be moved to another school temporarily.
Parents need to be aware of the following:
Information regarding changes to the
normal operation of schools will be broadcast
over local radio stations. Parents are urged to
listen to the radio rather than telephoning
individual schools, which puts an added burden
on school personnel as well as overloading
In the event of a major disaster such as
an earthquake or serious flooding, bus
transportation will be canceled. Students will be
held at schools.
Students will be released only to people
named on the blue emergency card, or the
special disaster card used at some schools.
Parents need to be sure that more than one
adult is authorized to pick up their children. A
high school sibling may be one of the authorized
persons, if the parent wishes.
In order to maintain security, each
school has designated a location for "reunion"
of parents and students. Be sure you know the
procedures for checking out a student during
an emergency. School personnel must keep
track of the location of all students and to whom
they are released; parents can help in this effort
by following procedures.
