• During an emergency situation, the District website (www.tempeunion.org) and the District office will keep parents informed. The District Office will also advise KTAR (92.3 FM) who will forward information to parents.


    What should you do in an emergency situation?

    We want our parents to be prepared for what can be done to help the school if we are in an emergency situation.
    Here is some basic information:
    • Please listen to the instructions through the media/web pages and act accordingly. DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL as the phones will be used for the emergency situation and staff members will be busy taking care of students needs.  Messages to the media will be updated as needed; for instance when and where you can pick up your child(ren).

    • If the school is in lockdown, NO ONE (other than emergency response teams) is allowed to enter the school. This is for your child's safety. Please DO NOT COME TO THE SCHOOL but listen to the broadcast/website for the time and place you can pick up your child(ren). 

    • Once the emergency situation is over, any adult coming to the school to pick up the child(ren), must be on the approved list and MUST SHOW IDENTIFICATION. This is for your child's safety so we can track who has picked up the child. Students who normally walk home will be allowed to do so ONLY AFTER THE POLICE HAVE DETERMINED THE AREA IS SAFE. Under some conditions, students that walk may need to be picked up and students who drive may need parental permission to leave campus and drive home.

    • MAKE SURE EMERGENCY INFORMATION IS CURRENT FOR YOUR CHILD(REN).  Whenever you move, change phone numbers or change emergency contact names contact the school immediately. 

    • Staff members are trained for emergency situations and our highest priority is the safety of our students. Keep this information so you know how you can help your child should an emergency happen at school.
