Severe Weather and Emergency Procedures

Emergency Situations
Rarely do emergency situations arise at Rock Ridge, however, if one should arise, the yellow flag will be raised on the flag pole indicating that parents will need to approach the building to sign their child out from their classroom. If children have been moved to a safer area you will be notified by staff of the procedure that you need to follow.

Severe Weather and Lightning

(NEW COVID LIGHTNING PROCEDURES)
In situations where the weather is severe or the threat of lightning exists, Rock Ridge will hang a yellow flag on the front flagpole. Teachers will hold children in their classrooms.  

Parents need to park and come to the building and sign their children out.  Parents can sign their students out at different exits around the building, depending on grade level.



-Ms. Poalillo (Kindi), Pre-school and SSN will be checked out at their outside classroom doors.

-AN, 5th and 6th grade will be checked out at the playground doors.

-Gilbert & Grider (Kindi) along with 1st grade will check out at the 1st grade door (south side doors)

-2nd and 3rdGrade will check out of the gym doors by the parking lot.

-4th grade will check out of their classroom doors in the mobiles.

 

  Parents should provide the classroom teacher with an emergency release form that indicates alternate adults that can pick up students in the event of emergency/severe weather.  Rock Ridge students will not be released to middle or high school students during severe weather dismissals.  At approximately 3:45 remaining students will be moved to the gymnasium and be held there for pick up.

Buses will be held until safe to transport students.  Walkers and bikers will be released once the severe weather has passed.
