Emergency Cards

An up-to-date emergency card with current telephone numbers must be on file in the school office at all times. Emergency phone numbers must be of those persons able to pick up students quickly should they become hurt or ill. Students will not be released to anyone not listed on the emergency card. When work or home phone numbers change, please notify the office.

Emergency Procedures

Henry Dalton Elementary School has a disaster plan in the event of an emergency situation.  This is a district wide program designed to provide temporary shelter and assistance to our students.  Regular drills are held to assure that students and staff are aware of their roles in an emergency situation.  During an actual emergency, gates will be locked and students will be released from the North parking lot, unless you are notified otherwise. To ensure an accurate account for every student and maintain their safety, we ask that you please adhere to the following procedures to pick-up you child in case of an emergency disaster:

  1. Arrive to school or another designated site immediately after instructed to do so.  This communication will be done through our typical means of contacting parents (phone message, email, text and alert through the AUSD app).  

  2. Form one line (please remember that all the other parents are also there to pick up their children).

  3. Show your ID and give the name of the child/children you are picking up.  Students will only be released to parents or designees on the emergency card.  

  4. Wait for your child/children in the waiting area.  Your child will be escorted to the waiting area by a school employee or designee.

It is vital that your contact information and all information on the emergency card is current.  Any time there is a change of address, phone number or contact, notify the school office immediately.
