Every year, we train all school staff and faculty on our district emergency protocols. We’ve spent the last two years updating our protocols to make sure every person who works in our schools is ready for an emergency. During the training, staff members walk through procedures for various emergency scenarios. Having staff members familiar with these protocols is crucial to making sure our students know what to do in the event of an emergency.
We’re also using a mobile app called DIR-S that allows school administrators and staff to communicate with each other, with district leaders, and with law enforcement during an emergency. Sharing crucial details through DIR-S saves time, which has the potential to save lives.
This year, we’ll be using a new hashtag, #SLCSDalerts, to share emergency updates on Twitter and Facebook. For parents who do not use social media, you can view all #SLCSDalerts Twitter updates by clicking the image below. Please bookmark this site. During an emergency, a school’s phone lines may not be working, but we will use this webpage and hashtag to share updates in real-time.
