Fife School District Safety Effort
The Fife School District is committed to providing a safe environment for students, staff, and visitors.
The district’s safety committee and our schools have worked together to strengthen and coordinate our Emergency Response Plans. We work closely with national, state, and local safety officials such as fire, police and public health officials to ensure our schools are well prepared in the event of an emergency.
Each school conducts drills throughout the school year to help student and staff prepare for possible emergencies. State law requires each school to conduct at least the following:
Safety Terms and Procedures
In the event of an emergency at your child’s school, it is important to know these terms.
Lock-down— A lock-down takes place if an internal or external threat is identified at the school. All school doors are locked and students are confined to classrooms. No entry into or exit from the school will be allowed until an “all clear” announcement is made.
Shelter in Place— Student take refuge in designated areas to protect them from hazardous materials or sever weather. No entry into or exit from the school will be allowed until an “all clear” announcement is made.
Evacuation– In the event of certain building emergencies, students will be relocated to an evacuation assembly area. Students will be released ONLY to parents/guardians with picture ID and permission from the district official. This procedure is necessary to account for the location of all students.
