Emergency Procedures

Keeping our staff and students safe is a top priority in Mead School District! RCW 28A.320.125 requires all public school districts and public schools to have current school safety plans and procedures in place. We work closely with our local first responders and department of emergency management in preparing for, responding to, and mitigating emergency incidents that may occur at our schools.

Mead School District student safety information can be found here.

We are committed to providing safe places for students to learn and staff to provide a quality education. 

Announcements regarding unscheduled school closings and early dismissals in emergency situations will be sent through our school messaging system, social media and local TV stations. Please check regularly for school announcements whenever conditions deteriorate or emergencies occur. More information on school closures: click here.

Please review contingency plans with your children so they are prepared in the event school dismisses early due to emergency conditions.

Parents/guardians: Do not assume you will be able to contact us to forward directions to your children during emergencies.  Telephone systems are quickly overwhelmed when emergencies occur.
