The SAFETY of STUDENTS and STAFF is OUR TOP PRIORITY!  We are continuously evaluating our school safety programs and protocols. 

RAPTOR Visitor Management System
The ECASD is continually implementing practive measures to enhance safety and security in our schools. To that end, we utilize a Visitor Management Ststem called RAPTOR. Please see RAPTOR Frequently Asked Questions to learn more. 

Safety Protocols
Each school in ECASD has a specific Crisis Response Plan that guides the school to identify and respond to incidents.  These plans educate staff, teachers, students, and other key stakeholders to their roles and responsibilities before, during, and after an incident.  The guidelines and procedures in these plans outline an organized, systematic method to prepare, prevent, mitigate, respond to, and recover from incidents.

I Love U Guys Foundation Standard Response Protocol
The ECASD uses the I Love U Guys Foundation's Standard Response Protocol and Standard Reunification Method (SRP) and (SRM). Students and staff will train, practice and drill the protocol. The SRP is action-based, flexible and easy to learn. It rationally organizes tactics for response to weather events, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to personal safety.

I Love U Guys Foundation Standard Reunification Method
The ECASD has also adopted the Love u Guys Standard Reunification Method (SRM). Circumstances may occur at the school that require parents to pick up their students in a formalized, controlled release. This process is called a Reunification and may be necessary due to weather, a power outage, hazmat or if a crisis occurs at the school. The SRM is a protocol that makes this process more predictable and less chaotic for all involved.
