Emergency Preparedness

Emergency drills are conducted in accordance with the policy on Emergency Preparedness Plan for the Utah State Office of Education.

  • Evacuation – In case of evacuation from the building, students stay with their teacher until notification is given to send them on the bus for home or release them to their parents. In case of inclement weather we have been given permission to walk with the students to the Southern Utah University’s America First Arena, where students will wait for the buses or for their parents to pick them up.

  • The South Elementary PTA has provided each teacher a bucket with emergency supplies. Students are asked at the beginning of the school year to bring a small sack with food supplies in it for emergency use. In case of a natural disaster, students will stay with their teacher with the emergency supplies and food until parents arrive.

  • Lock Down Procedure – When the code is given over the intercom teachers will lock all doors in their immediate area and wait until the all clear is given.
