Emergency Information for
SFPS Parents & Guardians


What's the Plan?

All SFPS schools have an organized, systematic Incident Response Plan in place to reduce risks or prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from a variety of incident or emergency situations. Each school also has a trained Incident Response Team to prepare for and respond to a wide variety of potential threats to school safety. Schools also have a Threat Assessment Team trained to identify issues that could lead to school violence so that they can be addressed appropriately before they become an incident. The types of incidents can vary from a death or accident affecting some members of the school community to a natural disaster or community crisis affecting a lot of individuals in the school. The SFPS has a School Security Department and the Office of Emergency Management to coordinate all plans, training, preparation, and response.  School faculty and staff are trained to assess the seriousness of incidents and respond according to the SFPS District and School Site plan's established procedures and guidelines. Each year the School Security Department and the SFPS Safety Committee review the District Incident Guidance & Response Plan, updating it to include "best practices", "lessons learned" and new industry standards. We also include resources for parents and guidance so that parents and guardians will know how best to respond when their child's school is at risk or under a threat. Please feel free to access this site or call our office for more information on any issue or concern you may have.
