Emergency Communication (ParentSquare)
Go HERE for our Parent Square Resources and Information Page
We strive to make sure that every parent/guardian has the most accurate and timely information regarding emergency situations, school closures and weather alerts. We encourage parents to provide up-to-date contact information to the school in order to allow for proper notification during an emergency.
Several channels are utilized to communicate these notifications. Our primary tool is our mass-notification system ParentSquare. The information distributed through ParentSquare comes directly from the contact information provided to the school during registration. We will utilize the following methods to disburse information:
- Phone Call
- SMS Text Messaging
- Social Media
Raptor Visitor Management Alerts
Identification is required by all campus visitors. The visitor management system scans the offender databases alerting campus staff to a possible match. The campus administrator has final authority as to controlling access on their campus.
Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect
Anyone who suspects that a child has been or may be abused or neglected has a legal responsibility to report to law enforcement or Child Protective Services (CPS).
- Any District employee, agent, or contractor has an additional legal obligation to submit a report to law enforcement or CPS, as applicable, within 48 hours of when the person first suspects that the child has been or may be abused or neglected. Failure to report suspected child abuse or neglect is a criminal offense. Do not try to investigate suspicions; a trained investigator will evaluate the child’s situation.
- You cannot delegate this responsibility to another person. All persons who suspect child abuse or neglect must make their report.
