School System Safety

Each school and school system in the state is required to have emergency plans that protect students, staff, and campus visitors. The Jenkins County School District has developed its plan in coordination with the local Emergency Management Agency, Law Enforcement, and the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency.  

The Jenkins County Schools Emergency and Safety Plan includes topics such as:
  • Accidents and serious injuries
  • Fire and emergency evacuations
  • Tornado and severe weather situations
  • Lockdown procedures
  • Shelter in place
  • Outdoor activities and athletic events
  • Biological, Radiological, and Chemical spills and threats
  • Transportation accidents
  • Emergency contact information
  • Visitor access to the facilities
These plans also include planning for both school and whole campus evacuations and reunifications.  However for the security and safety of students, staff, and the reunification sites, the exact location of the reunification sites will be disclosed to parents and the community when students are safely transported to that location.  Our goal is to protect every student, staff member, parent, and visitor.

The school system has a designated Safety Team that coordinates and facilitates the safety plan, school drills, and continuously works with the faculty and staff to improve school safety.
