FISD Emergency Procedures and Definitions
A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff and administration.
FISD uses Standard Response Protocol (SRP). The SRP is based on these four actions. Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate and Shelter. In the event of an emergency, the action and appropriate direction will be called on the PA. LOCKOUT - “Secure the Perimeter” LOCKDOWN - “Locks, Lights, Out of Sight” EVACUATE - “To the Announced Location” SHELTER - “For a Hazard Using a Safety Strategy”. Please refer to the attachment titled, “Standard Response Protocol" for specifics about each action.
Communication with Parents
FISD will provide parents and guardians with accurate information as quickly as possible via the FISD website and FISD Facebook page. However, please understand that events of this nature are very fluid and constantly changing. Also be aware that information that comes from other sources, such as news media, personal Facebook accounts or Twitter, may not be accurate. Should your child contact you during such an event, remind them it is important they follow the directions of school staff.
