SAFETY PROCEDURES AT YOLANDA

We strive to be prepared for any emergency that may occur during the school day.  In a effort to be practiced in our procedures we periodically hold drills such as fire, earthquake and our CODE RED & CODE BLUE drills.

A CODE BLUE would be called in the event of unsafe circumstances at a nearby location.  In a CODE BLUE the building is locked down with all doors locked and windows covered.  Students continue to move about the room as usual with supervised visits only to the restrooms located in their pods.

A CODE RED would be called in the event of unsafe circumstances on the school grounds.  In a CODE RED the building is locked down with all doors locked and windows covered.  Lights are turned off and students are moved away from the doorways or windows and huddled down low until the danger no longer exists.

We all hope that we never have to use these drills in a real life situation.  But should we ever need to, we strive to be prepared to insure that our students are safe and secure.  If you have any questions regarding these drills please feel free to call the school office at 541-744-6418
