Both LAUSD as a district and Dahlia Heights Elementary School have developed procedures that are designed to keep our students and staff as safe as possible. Your familiarity with these procedures will help our response to any emergency be as orderly and productive as possible.
In the event of an earthquake or any other significant emergency, all students may need to be kept at school. The school has provisions for the entire school population to remain safely on campus for 72 hours.
- Each fall students will be asked to bring in an earthquake kit with emergency food supplies that will be given to them in case of an earthquake.
- Emergency drills are held monthly
- Many Staff Members have been trained in First Aid through the Red Cross.
- Children will only be released to a person listed on their emergency card.
In the event of heavy rainfall, earthquake or other emergencies, school closures will be broadcast on the radio prior to school time. If phones are operable, the school will phone you via Connect-Ed (a mass message system sent to your primary phone).
