School Emergency Guide
Emergency Evacuation Information
Parents Have a Key Role in Emergency Response While we hope that every school day runs smoothly, an emergency situation can occur at any given time. It is important that we follow school and district policies, procedures and guidelines to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
In the event that our school becomes unsafe and we have to evacuate our campus we have an agreement with Southwestern Middle School as our primary evacuation site and Woodward Avenue Elementary School as the secondary evacuation site. Our media staging area is located at the Deland regional Library, 130 E. Howry Ave., Deland FL. 32724.
Connect Ed phone messages and local media will be great sources of current information for families. Stay tuned to local news channels and be sure to keep your phone numbers current with school officials so that you know exactly what is going on if we were in an emergency situation.
During and following an emergency situation, school and district officials must act quickly and follow established emergency protocol ls to safeguard students and staff, secure schools, and communicate accurate information in a timely manner. Parents can assist greatly by helping with preparation before the emergency.

Make sure to always check your child for head lice during routine grooming. As with any contagious condition, prevention is key. There is no outbreak of lice at this time but we encourage you to be proactive. Keep your child's hair pulled back if it's long; discourage sharing of brushes, combs, and head gear.
The signs of head lice are scratching at the back of the neck and behind the ears. It appears like a dandruff flake but glued near the base of the hair shaft. There are many over the counter treatments. Check with your child's doctor for what they recommend or you may pick up the flyer from your school, "Guide for Head Lice Treatment".
If your child has head lice, please notify the school nurse. If your child is found to have live bugs during school hours, you will be asked to come pick your child up for early dismissal. Please have updated phone numbers on the emergency card at school. Should you have any questions, please contact the clinic, or go to the School Health page on the school website for more information.
