Disaster Plan: (go to top)

What is a disaster plan?
A disaster plan is a comprehensive, easily accessible, straightforward plan to follow in the event of an event that threatens staff and students.

How is ECHS's staff trained to respond to disaster?

1. Lockdown: If there is a situation on campus that would endanger the lives or safety of staff or students if they left a locked classroom or building, a "lockdown" will be called. The students are to adopt the "contain" (all doors are locked and not opened until "lockdown" call is cleared) and "conceal" (lights out, no noise, no cell phone use, pretending the room is empty) status. Staff is trained to not leave this status until the "all clear" is announced.

2. Evacuation: If there is a situation that requires staff and students to leave a potentially dangerous area, the staff is trained to evacuate to a very specific part of the ECHS baseball field. A very organized system of reporting student head counts then takes place, and everyone waits for the "all clear" to be announced. If the emergency requires a greater evacuation distance, the staff is trained to take the students to the church parking lot on Mesa drive and wait there for an "all clear".

Any questions can be either referred to assistant principal at ECHS or the district office.
