Health and Safety
The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. Safety begins with prevention and
having a plan in place. State law requires schools to conduct nine drills a year, including practice
for shelter-in-place, lockdown and evacuation. Information on this page will assist parents and families
in the event of an emergency. Please note that due to safety concerns, staff and students may be asked
by law enforcement to turn off cell phones during a crisis situation. This is an emergency management
best practice. Police do not want parents to come to school to retrieve their children, because that
could put the parent in danger and/or could compromise the police investigation.
In the event of an emergency such as a threat to campus, snow, windstorms, earthquake, or similar events,
the Valley School District may change school start or dismissal times for student safety. We will
communicate with parents through:
- Automated phone calls. Please ensure your school has a working phone number where you can be reached.
- Announcements on district and school websites
- Announcements on social media. Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
Emergency Dos & Don’ts
Student safety is our number one priority. Our schools have safety plans in place to handle natural disasters,
security issues, and other emergency situations, in coordination with local law enforcement and first
responders. Help us keep your child safe by following these emergency DOs and DON’Ts.
