In the event of a threat or a lockdown while students are traveling to and from school, how will schools communicate with students, parents, etc.?

Our commitment is to do everything we can to ensure that our children and staff are provided a safe, healthy, and supportive environment. We constantly encourage community members, students and staff to report suspicious activity or any concerns to school administrators and/or staff as soon as possible.

When there is an incident during school, HCPSS will continue to follow standard procedures, which include informing students, staff and families as soon as possible.

In any developing situation, the primary focus is to first ensure the safety of all students and staff and communicate with any relevant law enforcement agencies. Notification to families is crucial and will be done as soon as staff are able.

Using email and text alerts, HCPSS News keeps parents/guardians, staff, and community members up to date on news and events, including emergency information.
