    Student Release from a Centralized Location

    In the event that students need to be evacuated from campus, they will be escorted to the field/blacktop and released from there. If conditions do not allow for students to be outside (hazardous conditions, weather, etc.), students will be released from indoor locations.

    • Set up student check-out tables. Each table will have a list of all students, a copy of emergency cards, and check-out forms. Release will happen in alphabetical order by students’ last name.
    • Staff will check the information on the check-out form against the emergency cards. Release student only to an authorized adult.  When in doubt, ask for ID, if not shown, notify team leader and/or administration.   If the information matches, a staff member should locate student(s) and escort him/her/them to the check-out table.
