Back-to-School Safety Tips
There is a lot that can be done to plan for disasters, to limit risk, to increase the safety of students and teachers, and to ensure that schools recover quickly. However, the time to prepare is now.

In California, schools are required to have a disaster plan, to hold periodic “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” drills, evacuation drills, and to train students and staff.

Parents should know the policies and procedures of their children’s school during times of disaster or crisis. Parents should also make sure the school has their updated emergency contact information and that their children’s school emergency release card is current.
Parents have an important role in assuring the safety of their children whether at school or at home.
Prepare a “school emergency supplies” kit for each of your children. Let them help you put the kit together. What they have on hand when a disaster occurs could make a big difference in their safety and survival.

Items to Include in Each Child’s Emergency Supplies Kit:
  •  Emergency drinking water (3-day to one-week supply)
  •  Non-perishable food (3-day to one-week supply)
  •  First aid kit and book
  •  Essential medications
  •  Lightstick or a flashlight with extra batteries
  •  Identification card
  •  Family photos
  •  Towelettes
  •  Blanket
  •  Medical release card
  •  Emergency telephone numbers
  •  Change of clothing
  •  Favorite toy
Teach your children what to do in an emergency. Make sure they know their own names, addresses, and telephone numbers as well as the full names and contact information for parents along with a second adult emergency contact.

Please visit the City's website for information regarding Safe Routes to School.
