School safety is a priority. Schools have written plans to prevent and respond to emergencies, and there are trained safety teams in every school. Tornado, fire, lockdown and other emergency drills are practiced on a regular basis. A school emergency may require a lockdown, shelter in place, evacuation or other actions. Please do not call or come to the school during an emergency, as it will tie up phone lines and endanger you and others. SchoolMessenger, the school division’s website (mychesterfieldschools.com), Facebook, Twitter, TV and radio will be used to communicate when it is safe to release students and how parents will be reunited with their children.
