Emergency Response Procedures

In times like these, it's only natural to be concerned about the safety of your family, friends and colleagues. It's no different here at the Meridian School District, where the safety of our students and staff is paramount. Over the past several months, our staff has worked to improve and fine tune our emergency plans. We believe we have comprehensive plans in place that are designed to help keep your children safe. We continue to work in concert with local law enforcement, fire and emergency management officials to improve our plans and to improve our ability to work cooperatively in the event of an emergency.

The actions taken during any type of emergency situation depend a great deal on the specifics of the incident. Responses may range from having counselors available to speak with individual students about concerns or fears they may have to school evacuation or lockdown. The main objective is the protection of the students and staff members. In any crisis situation, Meridian would follow direction from public safety officials as appropriate. The ability to remain flexible is a key component of each school's plan and of district-wide preparations.

Communication and information are critical elements in any crisis situation. In the event of an actual emergency, Meridian schools will use every available resource to communicate with parents and provide helpful information. Local radio stations, as outlined for announcing school closures or delays for weather, provide a very helpful communication link in crisis situations.

If you have questions about your child or about your school's safety and support responses, please contact your Principal. Everyone in the Meridian School District continues to work to make all our schools safe and secure environments for all our students.

Thank you for your continued support in these matters.
