School Emergency Plan
Please review the Dalton Emergency Plan below. This will help you better understand our school, our protocol and will serve to prepare your family for procedures that need to be followed by parents in the event of an emergency.
Emergency Procedures for Parents
It is critical that emergency contact information is updated at the school site so that parents/guardians can be contacted in the event of an emergency. Parents/guardians are also strongly encouraged to add multiple contacts in the event that they and those on their first contact list are unavailable to pick up students from the school. The Parent Portal is the best location to enter the information for all of your contacts. If you need assistance with this, please contact the Dalton Office.
Henry Dalton Elementary School has a disaster plan in the event of an emergency situation. This is a district wide program designed to provide temporary shelter and assistance to our students. Regular drills are held to assure that students and staff are aware of their roles in an emergency situation. During an actual emergency, gates will be locked and students will be released from the North parking lot, unless you are notified otherwise. To ensure an accurate account for every student and maintain their safety, we ask that you please adhere to the following procedures to pick-up you child in case of an emergency disaster:
Arrive to school or another designated site immediately after instructed to do so. This communication will be done through our typical means of contacting parents (phone message, email, text and alert through the AUSD app).
Form one line (please remember that all the other parents are also there to pick up their children).
Show your ID and give the name of the child/children you are picking up. Students will only be released to parents or designees on the emergency card.
Wait for your child/children in the waiting area. Your child will be escorted to the waiting area by a school employee or designee.
It is vital that your contact information and all information on the emergency card is current. Any time there is a change of address, phone number or contact, notify the school office immediately.
