Emergency/Safety Guide

Parents and Guardians Have a Key Role in Emergency Response

During and following an emergency situation, school and district officials must act quickly and follow established emergency protocols to safeguard students and staff, secure schools, and communicate accurate information in a timely manner. Parents can assist greatly by helping with preparation before the emergency.

School Guardian

This year Horizon will be provided with a school guardian. This individual will provide additional security and surveillance to the school campus and parking areas. They will help supervise and manage students while on campus.

Visitors

You must sign in as a visitor in the Main Office each time you are campus. You will need to provide photo identification each time. This is a security measure.

Single Point of Entry

The Parent Drop Off/Pick Up Loop is the single point of entry during the instructional day. All other gates will be locked at the morning tardy bell and re-opened just prior to the dismissal bell. This is done for security measures.

Emergency Contact Information

Call if you have any changes to contact phone numbers. The school must have a way to contact parents in case of an emergency situation.

Smoking

Per School Board Policy, smoking is not permitted on any School Board property at any time. This includes in vehicles while on campus or in the parent pick up loop.
