A message regarding school safety from Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25…..
“Each year schools in the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25 are required to conduct emergency drills to prepare students in case there is ever an emergency to which the school needs to respond. These drills include fire drills, evacuation drills to clear the building and move off-site, drills to protect students when there may be an intruder or the threat of an intruder and other drills when a need is identified.
Parents need to know that when a school is in a lock down, parents will not be allowed into the building to check out students for any reason until a threat from an intruder in a building is cleared either by the police department and/or the District’s administration. Cooperation with this process is critical in order to ascertain the safety of your children when in a school building. Once the level of threat has been determined by school officials and/or the police department, the building will be opened for parents to enter either in a controlled access mode or with the standard procedures for every day operations. By this means, the school can keep the children safe and be aware of any visitors, patrons or other people who are not staff or students in the school. If parents have questions regarding these procedures, they may contact the building administrators or the Office of the Director of Student Support Services at (208) 235-3253.”
