Emergency Situations

Posted in News & Announcements

Dear Eastmont Families,
Yesterday, in accordance with state law and Canyons District’s Emergency Response Plan, our school participated in a fire drill. This is one of at least four drills that we’ll conduct throughout the year. All Canyons District schools practice lockdown and shelter-in-place drills throughout the year, in addition to preparing for a host of other threats, from fires and earthquakes to hazardous materials. Elementary students participate in these drills at least once a month. Secondary schools hold quarterly drills. Emergency drills are an opportunity to commit safety measures to memory and to reinforce roles and expectations for employees, students, parents, patrons and law-enforcement partners. During a fire evacuation drill, students are taught to follow the directions of a teacher or supervising adult in calmly exiting the building. They are directed to leave personal belongings behind and bring their cell phones. Teachers are trained to grab a roll sheet, lead students to a predetermined evacuation location, take roll and account for students, and report any problems to administrators. We encourage families to discuss this information at home, and thank you for your support in keeping our schools welcoming, secure and prepared.

Thank you

Eastmont Administration
