EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION

Each year, parents are asked to complete an emergency release form to provide contact information in the event that school is dismissed early or opening is delayed because of severe weather or another emergency, or if the campus must restrict access due to a security threat.

The district will rely on contact information on file with the district to communicate with parents in an emergency situation, which may include real-time or automated messages. It is crucial to notify your child’s school when a phone number previously provided to the district has changed.

If the campus must close, delay opening, or restrict access to the building because of an emergency, the district will also alert the community in the following ways:

EMERGENCY CRISIS MANAGEMENT INFORMATION

The Channelview Independent School District has developed an extensive Crisis Management Plan to address prevention, intervention, and follow-up of crisis situations. The safety of our children is our primary concern. The following procedures will be utilized during certain crisis situations.



  • Shelter In Place

This procedure is used in any situation other than weather that may be a hazard.

      • This means all windows and doors are locked and the air-conditioning will be shut off.

      • No one is allowed to enter or leave a building that has activated shelter in place procedures. This means that parents will not be able to pick up children from school. It is safer to keep the students inside the building rather than expose them to possible harm by allowing them to leave the building.

      • Once the "All Clear" is given, students and teachers will return to their regular activities or a parent/student "Reunification" (student pickup) program may be initiated.

      • If a school is sheltering in place, parents should also shelter in place at home.

  • Shelter In Place, Weather Only

This procedure is used when weather conditions exist that may place a school or schools in immediate danger.

  • Students and staff are sheltered inside the buildings away from outside windows or doors.

  • Buildings are open for entry only.

  • There is no exit until the "All Clear" is given.

  • Normal activities will resume when the "All Clear" is given, or a student/parent "Reunification" (student pickup) program may be initiated.

  • Lockdown

This procedure is used when an intruder invades the premises or there is an imminent danger to the campus.

  • All doors, windows, and classrooms are locked. Students and teachers remain in the classroom until the "All Clear" is given.

  • No one will be allowed to enter or leave the building. Parents will not be allowed to pick up children from school.

  • The local authorities will provide assistance if necessary.

  • Once the "All Clear" is given students and teachers can return to their regular activities. If needed the parent/student "Reunification" (student pickup) process will be utilized.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS

  • In case of a conflict between Board Policy (including Student Code of Conduct) and any provisions of the Student Handbook, the provisions of Board Policy or the Student Code of Conduct that were most recently adopted by the Board are to be followed.

  • School organizations, student clubs, performing groups such as the band, choir, drill, JROTC, LOTC, and athletic teams may establish stricter codes of conduct and have eligibility rules. Any such code of conduct and/or rules should be in writing, on file in the principal’s office, and approved by the superintendent and/or board of trustees.

  • District alternative schools may have different rules, requirements, and procedures than those outlined in this handbook.
