    Fire Evacuation

    • When the fire alarm rings, students and teachers should move together out the exit and to the designated meeting spot for that room (see below).
    • Teachers should bring their class roster and close and lock the classroom door.
    • Teachers do not need to submit attendance to department secretaries but should instruct students to remain with them. Teachers may be asked to provide attendance.
    • Please make sure that your students are not blocking streets or driveways, as emergency vehicles will need to get through the area.

    In the event of a fire alarm sounding during a passing period, students should exit through the nearest door. Teachers should also exit out the nearest door and help monitor the area. At the beginning of each semester, familiarize yourself with the GREEN emergency sheet in your classroom and the designated meeting spot which is determined by the exit used.

    Severe Weather/Shelter-in-Place

    • When the Severe Weather announcement or Tornado Sirens sound, students and teachers should move into designated safe areas.
    • Check the GREEN emergency sheet in your classroom to identify a safe location which includes all basement areas, locker rooms, bathrooms, and interior 1st floor classrooms. Once there, assume a position of safety covering your heads from possible debris.
    • Severe Weather Shelter Area signs are posted throughout the 1st floor to assist.
    • If outside, teachers will direct students to the nearest building interior safe area.
    • If outside and there is no time to get indoors, attempt to squat or lie low in the nearest ravine, open ditch, or low spot away from trees and power poles.
    • Remain in shelter until notified by the Incident Commander or emergency responders.

    At the beginning of each semester, familiarize yourself with the GREEN emergency sheet in your classroom and the designated safe areas.

    School Closings & Delayed Start Schedule 

    • School closing information will be available at www.naperville203.org
    • Information may also be announced on radio and television stations.
    • The district will also make efforts to use the automated telephone “call out” system to notify families of school closings or unusual circumstances.
     
    Inclement Weather Late Start:  In the case of heavy snow, the district may delay the start of the school day.  District buses will arrive at the scheduled pick-up points two hours later than their regularly-scheduled time but dismissal times will not change.  Our food service provider will continue to serve meals as usual.

    Lock Down Procedures 

    There are two types of lockdowns that may occur for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, medical emergency, K-9 search, missing student, threat outside of the building, threat inside the building, etc. These are serious in nature and are used to help protect the safety of students and staff.

    Whenever possible staff should maintain email access for the purposes of receiving communication from building administration, district administration, or police.
