Response in the event of an outbreak after the students have arrived at school

If a disaster of the above type and scale occurs while students are on their way to school or after school starts, we will check the safety of the students' homes and routes to school, and make sure that their parents/guardians are home before dismissing them from school. However, if the school district has issued a "Level 3 (evacuate the elderly, etc.)" or "Level 4 (evacuate all students)" warning, we will make every effort to ensure the safety of students on campus and have them wait and evacuate.

In the event of a disaster during the school day, please make sure that your children understand in advance that they should evacuate to their homes, the school, or other safe places nearby, and what actions they should take to ensure their safety.
