Each school and school system in the state is required to have emergency plans that protect students, staff, and campus visitors. The Union County School District and each of its five schools have developed their plans in coordination with the local Emergency Management Agency, Law Enforcement, and the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency.
The Union County Schools Emergency and Safety Plan includes topics such as:
Accidents and serious injuries
Fire and emergency evacuations
Tornado and severe weather situations
Shelter in place
Outdoor activities and athletic events
Biological, Radiological, and Chemical spills and threats
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.
Each school 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.
